EGR Delete / Coolant Filter

I have been considering both of these for some time.

Has anyone done either "in the driveway"?

EGR Delete;
I have a solid mechanical background and the job doesn't concern me. I was just hoping to get some tips/tricks about the installation. I do plan on removing the coolers completely, and I understand this is the tricky part. I guess some people just leave the coolers in place. Any recommendations on the kit to buy? Sinister, Rudys?


Coolant Filter:
I will install a coolant filter at the same time, so a coolant flush is on the to do list along with this...
Anyone have a plus or minus on the kits out there? Sinister or DieselSite? How about the actual coolant?.. there is a lot out there to choose from.


I did search, but I didn't really find a write up, or any specific comments about the installation.

You found a good thread for the egr delete. As far as coolant filters go i went with the dieselsite kit. Good instructions and easy install. Also as far as coolant goes as long as you get an EC-1 rated coolant any one will work. I went with the peak final charge.

I aam running the dieselsite kit as well, 22,000 miles and zero issues, I had one on my 6.0 for the 60k miles I owned it and no issues with that one either, they work great! I stick with the motorcraft coolant.

coolant filter a big must especially if you havent flushed. i like diesel site as well. the hose was short by a foot however.

Doing both of these this weekend. I ordered the river city diesel delete kit and ordered custom parts for a coolant filter that'll be plumbed in between the heater core hoses. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

As far as coolant, I have a Cat dealer in my town, using their ec-1 rated Cat coolant mixed with distilled water.

Thanks for the input. I have to admit, I like the blue bling on the Sinister kits. But for the coolant kit it looks like the hose is crimped on the tee on the Sinister kit, I don't like that. I am more comfortable with the clamp connection on the Dieselsite kit. But for the EGR Delete, I kind of like the Sinister kit better...

It looks like cleaning the intake is a good idea too! Wow, in the write up, the owner claims 40K miles and the intake and it is very nasty, going to go all the way and clean mine i believe.
