EGR Cooler delete
Ok, so my truck is whistling and is going to get studs/new HG put in within the next week or so, i'm also looking at doing the EGR delete/bypass. i plan on doing the EGR my self(after i get it back from studs being put in) so i dont have to worry about any problems down the road any more. However i see there are a few ways to go about doing it. they are:
EGR delete - new intake manifold with EGR valve removed and welded shut
EGR cooler bypass - exhaust up pipe & EGR cooler delete tube.
EGR delete up pipe - just the exhaust up pipe from manifold to turbo removing connection from exhaust to EGR.
i'm not going to do the full delete because i'm not really wanting to pull the cab off myself unless i absolutely have to.
my question is this. how good is the EGR cooler bypass compared to the full delete? can it be installed without removing the cab? are there any problems vs the full EGR delete?
my last question is, i noticed that someone just did a write up on removing their EGR while doing studs, and they left the EGR cooler in place and just added an up pipe to disconnect the exhaust gasses from the EGR. what problems could i have if i just did the up pipe and left the factory coolant passages? what are the downsides and benefits to both? I love this truck, i wouldn't trade it for anything and i'm looking forward to having a bulletproof power stroke once the studs and egr are done. just need a little input.
thanks in advance!
