? about egr delete

Is it worth the time and money to do this if I don't plan of making this a race truck or sled pull truck? I want to do more stuff to the truck just because I love speed and it's pretty cool beating mustangs and other sports cars in races (on race courses of course) so I have plans of doing more stuff but not looking at making 700 rwhp or anything like that. So is it worth it?

It is pretty much necessary if you want your truck to be a competition rig and last...

Are you referring to a full delete with wastegate or just block off plates? The block off plates aren't good for much other than safety for if the EGR coolers were to bust. The downside of them is much greater than the upside in my opinion. You are more likely to blow head gaskets with them in than you are to have an EGR cooler rupture without them.

Now what do you mean you did yours? Did you do it yourself or paid someone? If so how much did everything run you?
