What is the difference

Ok so i have a guy who can do my head studs and my egr delete. I originally planned to buy the egr delete from innovative but he said he was just going to weld shut the exhaust tube that goes back to the egr. What is the difference between the two?

this is the different.

the kit that eric sells is adams kit from First Coast Diesel Performance

adams kit totally deletes the egr, egr valve and the uppipe is solid.

your guy wants to just weld the uppipe closed (like i did) and that will keep the gas from going to the cooler, preventing it from boiling. when you do that you keep the gas out and the cooler stays intact so the coolant can still flow through the cooler and back into the oil cooler.

basically if you want a total "un reversal " kit then thats the way to go. if you dont care about warranty or dont have it then go that route. if you still have warranty then maybe the way your guy wants to do it may be the way to go for you.

but remember you still have to do something with valve because it will still open even if its unplugged. pressure will open it.

uppipe welded shut

If you have the egr cooler blocked off then it shouldn't bother anything even if the egr valve opens because it still won't be able to let exhaust gas through.

The valve won't give you anymore problems but you still run the risk of blowing the EGR cooler and hydrolocking the engine...ask me how I know

Just do it right the first time and get rid of the system completely

Completely eliminate the EGR cooler with a full delete kit like the one you mentioned in your first post.
