EGR delete power gain?

Some guy came up to me when I was at the race track that has 3, built 6.0's that have everything.

He said for about $350 he could do the half-*** Egr delete and it would give me about 30 h.p.

Can anyone back this up?

i didnt think deleting the egr gives you more power, i thought it's because it's prone to breakage that people deleted it, but i could be wrong

Thats what I thought. But with the cooler running temperatures and not recycling 1200 degree fuel into the motor, I figured maybe it could have made some power.

my kits are just a little more than that and they arent the "half-a$$ed" kits.... you wont see any power gains, you will just gain reliability from the motor... the tuner to shut the EGR system down will give you power gains

I read that on here somewhere else too, but I still can't figure it out. How does it help keep the headgaskets from failing?

My guess would be engine runs cooler, therefore the studs do not heat up and become weak which would lead to them stretching.

And alrighty, thanks for everyones input.

exhaust gasses flash boil coolant, which will then flow through the EGR cooler, the oil cooler and through the engine... when it goes into the engine, the weak heads on the truck will start to warp due to steam and put extra pressure on the EGR cooler and the Oil Cooler and cause problems.....

By deleteing the EGR cooler all together, exhaust gases dont go by the coolant, so it help prevent the problems... and then studs will make the heads less prone to warpage...


now that is the best I can explain... someone else may chime in and explain better than that... but hey, I tried to help


what the EGR was meant for was to take exhaust, recirculate it back into the motor to burn off excess fuel and carbons.... however the design of it was severely flawed and it only looks good on paper, but to meet emissions standards they were put in these trucks...
