Basically your blocking the exhaust recirculation back to your intake manifold and removing the two coolers it flows through. This is a pic of what the egr system does to your intake. Doesn't seem healthy

An EGR delete does just that....deletes the EGR. You install one to increase the reliability of your 6.4L Power Stroke engine. The advantages are no more EGR coolers, no more exhaust circulating back through your intake manifold, and increased reliability. There aren't any real disadvantages. I guess no longer being emissions compliant and not having a warranty would be a disadvantage....kinda.....yea, not really.

Theres a couple different ways you can do it. Complete removal if you can access all the attachment points or inserting plates to block off the ports.

Both will do the same thing with the later making it look like you have functional egr's in the event you have someone looking.

Blocker plates don't give you the full advantages of an EGR cooler delete. They are more visually friendly though.

Dumb question--How common is a stuck EGR valve due to soot buildup? Assuming the EGR valve is disabled, is there really that much soot that makes it all the way to the top of the engine to plug it up?

I was reading EGR costs up to 3% in diesel fuel economy according to some study I read, all just to reduce NOx emissions.

Very true, may be out of the blue but our 6.4L EGR deletes just went out sale for thanksgiving/black friday. $120...... if you want one now is the time to save about $50 on it.

Why don't the blocker plates give you as good of an advantage as the complete delete? Does the EGR still have coolant running through it with just the plates or is everything blocked off, and the P.O.S. is just hanging on for the ride? I understand with the complete delete every part of that devil is gone. I guess I'm wondering what the plates block off and do vs. The complete delete.

Thanks!

the blocker plates just block the exhaust gas. If you have a tuner that keeps the egr valve shut then I don't see the point in the plates unless I am missing something.

That was my question. I just installed, last week, all the items in my sig. The H&S manuel stated that the EGR would be turned off. Did I read that right?
