I'm in the same boat with you. I'm thinking about doing mine this summer. From what I understand Sinister is a good kit. The other one I was looking at was Dirty Diesel's because it comes with the CFM intake elbow. I think it's around $400.

I just did the Dirty Diesel delete to my truck & after seeing how restrictive the stock elbow was...I think I made the right decision. Plus you get rid of the extra coolant hoses & it really cleans things up under the hood. We'll find out tomorrow, on a 600 mile trip, how everything works.

Did the dirty diesel intake elbow go all the way to the intercooler line, or is there an adaptor? Since I already have the ceramic coated intercooler line it might be a cheaper option for me to go with the dirty diesel set up.

yes the intake elbow goes all the way to the intercooler pipe and connects with the intercooler boots. I think that is what you are asking.

That was what I was asking. I should have also asked if you had the stock length intercooler line.

I was planning to sell my intercooler pipe, then get the extended intercooler pipe that goes with the CFM elbow. If the dirty diesel elbow goes all the way to my intercooler line, It will same me a lot of headachs...

I was also thinking of doing an EGR delete on my 09 6.4L but the mechanic talked me out of it. He highly recommends it for the 6.0L but not on the 6.4L

What reason did he give for not doing it?

He said he's never had anyone come in with an EGR problem on the 6.4L yet. He seems to think that the dual EGR valve on the 6.4L compared to the single EGR valve on the 6.0L made the difference. He also stated that if I still wanted it done it's a big job.

i have the intercooler pipe from Rudy's diesel performance. It works nicely. I am going to get the diesel site intercooler boots when i have some $$$ because they are a little longer than the stock boots.
