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 valve. 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!

No the valve and stock elbow will come out as one. He was probably thinking just taking the valve out which is a huge pain. The stock elbow is held on with 4 bolts and comes out with the valve attached to it. The coolers are a whole other story to get out

I have the kit, and it works well and wasnt to bad to install. Took a few hrs, but wasnt as hard as some have said. With this kit you will remove everything, egr valve/intake elbow, and coolers and replace it all with plates and a better flowing intake elbow.
