CAC & Elbow Kit Q's...

My truck came with the EGR deleted already, but I am wanting to complete the mod and install the cac tube and elbow kit. I looked in the engine bay & the egr looks totally deleted, but the egr valve is still there.. Here's two pics:




I want to complete the egr removal and install an aftermarket cac tube and elbow kit.. I'm just not sure what I exactly need to get this done, I've read a handful of cac tube & egr threads, but can't find one that is in my situation. I hate to post a thread that's already been discussed but I can't find the answer.

So will a cac tube & elbow kit set me straight? Or do I need any other components to make this work right?

That is all you will need. some people had trouble with the boots being a hair to short but that was just installing the cac pipe with the factory elbow still in place. I ordered the flo pro elbow and pipe and will hopefully get it installed when I get an oppourtunity at work. I filed down the rad support without removing the whole thing but I won't be able to see the fit until I remove the stock pipe & elbow.

It should all go in pretty smooth. All you need is the elbow like was said. You may need a longer boot though to connect the CAC and elbow. My CAC fit fine with my stock elbow/egr, but is a tad short with the intake elbow. I ordered a boot from the website below to make mine all come together better. The stock boot was long enough, just didnt give any wiggle room, or extra material.

Thanks for quick reply! I was leaning towards the flo pro as well, I have their exhaust and was happy with it, instructions a little vague, but hey- it's not fun if it's too easy!

Once you get it installed, post back with some pics and your input on install & how the kit fit & ect if you don't mind

I did see your threads or your input on a few CAC threads.. I too was looking at the no limit cac-- until I saw the price, holy Sh!T!! nice though.. you ended up going with the flo pro didn't you? I appreciate the link to that site, I'll see how mine fits first before I order one.

Nice looking truck btw Long beds just look better imo!

I also went with their exhaust and am extremely happy with the fit & also the tailpipe exit. It sounds alot better with the 5" as well compared to just a delete pipe. I just finished the gronding part today and as soon as I get the stuff installed I will post pics.

Thanks man. I dont consider anything with out a long bed a truck. I have the flo pro egr delete with the standard elite CAC. I love that no limit kit but as you said, it is a little much for what Im doing.
