educate me on this please

I've been doing A LOT of searching on a egr delete for my 08 F250. Once a few bills get taken care of I'm ordering a H&S tuner and doing a DPF delete. Looking at getting the flo pro kit. With that do you need to remove the cooler or other parts, how hard is it to do, any issues just blocking off? Leaving the truck in stock HP tune and just looking to get long life out of the truck. Thanks

That's what I didn't understand I guess because I thought the plates blocked the cooler from circulating. Or are the plates for once the cooler and ECR are removed then go in place? Sorry for the dumb questions but never been down this road.

Also the flo pro kit I'm looking at comes with a elbo. Is that needed/what is purpose of the elbow?

With your basic kits having 2 block off plates, it is to only block off the exhaust with a thin piece of material and leaving the cooler.

With the egr delete, you remove both coolers and block off exhaust and coolant passages and remove the whole egr valve itself with some kits. Getting rid of the coolant circulation is what helps prevent engine problems when the cooler goes bad.

Some kits have a pipe where the egr valve was to connect to intercooler. Some kits just have the block off plates.

Have not looked into this myself but would putting block off plates on and re routing coolant lines while keeping the coolers on the truck be a good way to maintain the fully emissions friendly look while not having any possibility of a cooler failure?

I wouldn't recomend pulling the coolers and still running the stock program. It should throw codes for EGR delta flow. and possibly cause a derate.

I'm running a Spartan programmer with the coolers still on and haven't had any egr problems as of yet. Spartan has released a good product and has HP programs from stock up to 350 HP with the dpf/doc delete.

The flo pro kit looks like it comes with every thing to delete the egr and cooler-block off plate for exhaust, coolant block of plugs, and polished intake elbow.
Is the sinister one any better?

Anything special to know have to worry about?

Is it worth doing before the warranty expires or would it be better to just leave the egr turned off by the tuner until the warranty expires? Granted that is another 65k for me.
Is the cooler still a issue even with the egr turned off?


I saw the bullet proof intercoolers and considered that if it would be a better option???
Sorry for all of the questions I just want to do what will be best for long term and cause the least issues.

I was like you and asked many questions and talked with several diesel shops. My service manager and one of the mechanics where I bought my truck convinced me to do the complete delete (dpf, cat, egr). I could not be happier with my decision and now I don't worry about the what ifs. I'm glad i have a mod friendly service dept. to deal with.
