Yes you'll need it tuned. Not for power or anything just to keep the CEL off.

you have to get a tuner sct can delete code but you will loss fuel mpgs went from 19 to 12 and the tuner cant fix that if they can I will by the tune but its an EPA mode the truck goes into when the egr is disconnected and the tuners havent figured out how to bypass it. not knocking the tunes they or great but if you want to keep your mileage wait awhile they might figure it out and you will get the best of both worlds.

This isn't true. You will not lose mpg's if you do the install right. Don't think an epa mode for a 6.0L even exists.

SCT makes the tuner and it is called an Xcaliber. There is an xcal 2 and xcal 3. The xcal2 will be cheaper but will still do the same thing the xcal 3 does, load tunes. The xcal 3 is able to load tunes faster, data log and I guess it just looks cooler. I would recommend finding a used xcal 2, imo.

People keep asking about the BLE products, and there website doesnt work for me!!! Firefox or IE!!!!

From what I know its a "spool" a chunk of Aluminum that you put in replacement of your EGR valve. It will stop the EGR gases or coolant if the cooler blows from getting in your intake. But does not protect the cooler from blowing, and pumping coolant into the exhaust through the turbo and smoking like a bandit. If catastrophic enough of a EGR cooler failure, the coolant will leak down and fill up the passenger manifold.

I would get block plates for the EGR cooler, weld closed the EGR cooler on the exhaust ends, or do a full EGR delete kit. Supposedly on any 05+ 6.0 you will need a tuner to shut off the EGR code regardess if the EGR valve is still there and functioning.

I have the most recent flashes and HAD a mileage drop but only because my KAM was erased. Mileage came back. In theory, if the egr is deleted correctly it WILL NOT decrease mileage but could very slightly increase it.

Hears what the techs are saying. When the egr is deleted or unpluged the computer reads this. The truck goes into epa mode it adds fuel to burn what ever gases that the epa dosnt want in the air. thats why it burns more fuel lower mileage and all the techs are supporting this its not me just what they are saying.
