Exclamation egr delete question

SIN SMC-EGRD-6.0
Above is a sinister delete kit that doesn't require the intake to be removed. First question is this a good delete kit? and since I just blew my egr backing the boat in the driveway ( luckily I was home I guess ) should I go ahead and pull the intake to clean up my mess? really don't know much about diesels so any help is greatly appreciated

If your Egr cooler blew up you want to replace the oil cooler too.

im assuming it did, honestly just happened a couple hrs ago so I managed to unhook the truck pop the hood to find coolant a little bit everywhere. of course the first sign was backing in and a cloud of white anti freeze smoke came rolling out of the exhaust, coolant was very low and heats began to rise. so should I pull the intake?

thanks, I've worked on a few vehicles and honestly knew the potential fall out with the 6.0 but liked the truck and bought it anyways.... do you know much about the sinister delete kit listed above or do you recommend another one?

is it normal that when you blow your egr to have anti freeze coming out from under the hood as well? As I said earlier when I popped the hood there was coolant a little bit everywhere? I am doubtful that I've compromised my head gaskets since it just happened and I haven't driven it but after reading im wondering why the fluid under the hood? any pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated

Find the source of the leak. If it was from the EGR cooler, which I highly doubt, then an external and internal failure at the same time would be unusual. It may have been the seal under the intake or even the tube connection seal from the oil cooler housing to the water tube, let alone a hose the let go.

Since you didn't find the leak point, it is possible the coolant came out the original Degas cap. But that doesn't explain the white smoke.

What does your monitor show for EOT/ECT delta?

Find the leak via a pressure test the coolant system. watch out for a hydrolock situation.

forgive my ignorance but here goes. I don't have a programmer or read out just stock gauges. when backing in it starting rolling steam out the exhaust, when I looked down at the gauges that I have all was normal then the water temp started to rise. since I was in the driveway I just shut it down, said several words, walked on up the drive and left it for a bit. im assuming the liquid from under the hood came from when it got hot and came out the degas cap but once again assumption. coolant was about 1.5 gallons low when I went back out to finish bringing it up to the garage. I just went down and climbed over it and started it up just to watch the smoke roll out the exhaust. 165k my gut tells me cooler to egr valve issue is causing water through the exhaust but honestly just going off what I've read and a friend who used to be a diesel mechanic.
