EGR delete or EGR block?

I plan on having the EGR deleted or have the EGR blocked. Is it better to do a EGR delete or having the EGR blocked? The gentleman doing the EGR block is just going to block the top EGR and not the bottom cause I guess it's a pain to block the bottom one. Is there any advantages or disadvantages doing a delete vs. the block? I guess it's cheaper to do the block instead of the delete. What do you recommend, thanks!

I would think it would be better to do the delete but idk I wouldn't mind finding out though

I'm addicted to diesel and I step on it constantly!

Deleting the egr and coolers is the way most people will go. It blocks off the exhaust as well as the coolant will no longer be going through the coolers preventing the possibility of an egr cooler failure and having coolant enter your engine. I am assuming he would just be blocking the exhaust side of the system which I am sure would work just fine. The complete delete is just a little more for peace of mind and also opens up a little space in the engine bay. Personally I would go with the full delete. Also if you do, puchase the delete that includes the intake elbow. I did not do this and bought the elbow after and it ended costing me a little more.

Do the full delete. The block off is just a band aid as you still have coolant flowing into the coolers. The full delete blocks both exhaust ports and both coolant spots.

And +1 for one with an elbow. I have to FloPro and it works just fine.

If he just blocks the top it might actually make things worse as hot exhaust gasses will heat and expand inside of the cooler. Heat rises. If you only block one block the lower passage since that is the exhaust inlet side. Yes it's a pain but blown egr coolers are more of a pain.

I run the erg blanked off, I have bullet proof egr coolers installed, I installed the Bullet Proof Diesel EGR coolers when I did studs and I did this just in case we go to inspections with a visual here in Washington state in the future, being I have the BPD EGR coolers I feel some what safer running coolant through the coolers without the possibility of the coolant side leaking.
