EGR delete vs EGR delete

New guy here. I have been hanging out for a while but just joined tonight. I recently bought a 04 F350 with just under 50K on it. I did a ton of research on this site and others before buying it and despite the negative perception of the 6.0 I got a good enough deal on it to take a chance. It is the first Ford I have owned so hopefully it doesn't disappoint. The mod that makes the most sense to me immediately is the EGR delete. I have been reading a lot of info on the topic but I wanted everyone's opinion on the different kinds/types of deletes.

Liberator has a good looking kit and they claim that others designs are flawed. They say it isn't important to delete the valve because that isn't the problem.

Elite Diesel has their own kit that they claim is the best solution.

Multiple others have the kits that replace the whole manifold and completely delete everything but according to Liberator the design is bad because of all the welds and connections.

What has everyone done and what is everyones opinion of what is the best way to accomplish the delete.

The head gaskets were replaced about 10,000 miles ago so I am hoping the delete will keep everything working correctly for a long time.

Thanks everyone!!

Your truck didnt have studs from the factory. If your Head Gaskets were replaced, you also got new BOLTs. They are not reusable. I have the Elite kit. No leaks or difficulties. While I had the intake off, I went ahead and had the EGR hole welded with a plug just to make it all look clean. As long as you are that far into it, remove your exhaust turbine housing and take it to a machine shop and have them port it for you. BIG improvement in throttle response. 3" diameter MAX and 3" and 250 thousandths depth. That will allow your turbine fins to still have proper clearance to the housing.

Not likely. EGR components are mandated by federal law for emissions, so unless you have an inside person at the dealership, you will be out of luck. Block it like I did until your warranty is up and then get the delete kit.

PS. Hope that they don't check your vehicle emissions every few years like here in AZ. Otherwise, when they do a visual inspection, you'll have to figure out how to get it all back together.

dont let liberator fool you into think welding an intake is bad.. our EGR delete kit has been installed on my truck and my partners truck for 3 years now with ZERO problems. The key to welding is knowing WTF you are doing.
