EGR Cooler block off
i've got a question about the EGR. Right now i've got ARP studs and for months she hasn't puked any coolant. Well the other day i noticed a few drops around the cap. I'm thinking that the EGR flash boiled the coolant and it puked just a little. I want to do a full EGR cooler delete like the liberator kit before i blow the HG again. However, i dont have $600 right now to spend and i still am under warranty. However i have two questions:
1.) will the cap that goes between the cooler and up pipe from eliete diesel work ok untill the warranty is up? i know coolant will still go through the cooler but it will keep the exhaust gases out of it and keep the stock appearance for warranty reasons right?
2.) if i did do the full EGR delete, i'm not doing the FCDP as i'm not replacing the whole manifold. i do however want to replace the up pipe with a unit like the liberator kit, or Innovatives new up pipe. Can this be installed without removing the cab? does anyone have a write up of how to do it and what needs to be removed to get to it?
also, i have tunes with the SCT from Eric so the EGR valve is already closed at all times.
