Any one install a Flo-Pro Polished Aluminum Intake Elbow

Looking at the Flo-Pro EGR delete with Polished Aluminum Intake Elbow for '08 F-350 6.4 CC. Been researching this EGR delete kit, have a question about the polished aluminum intake elbow. Do I have to remove the factory EGR valve and housing to install the polished aluminum intake elbow? Reason I'm asking is that I've been hearing and reading and was told by my diesel performance guy that it's almost impossible to remove the EGR. Would hate to get half way installed and not be able to take out the EGR valve. Correct me I'm wrong with this kit, that I have to remove the factory intake and EGR valve? Or does the polished aluminum intake elbow needs the stock EGR valve to stay in place? Please let me know before I purchase this kit. Thank you!

I have the FloPro egr delete and elbow. Yes you have to remove the valve and completely delete the EGR and coolers to install the elbow. And who ever told you it is impossible is an idiot (to put it lightly). I deleted mine in my driveway (cab on) and there are lots of people on this site who have done the same. It just takes patients and probably a whole Saturday.

The factory intake and egr are one piece they come out easy with 4-5 screws I think. It's been a while since I did mine but it's not terribly difficult. The horizontal cooler kinda is a pain but just be patient and invite a few buddies over.

Taking the valve out of the factory elbow is difficult yes, but that's not what your doing. Your removing the entire factory intake elbow with the egr valve in it and then swapping on the new 3" elbow, there is no need to try to pull the valve out of the factory elbow its self.

like others said removing the whole assembly of the valve and elbow is pretty easy.
