EGR delete question

Gonna be doing an EGR delete to a 6.4 this weekend. How much coolant will I lose when pulling it apart? I'm not sure how close it is to needing an oil change, but should it be changed as well? Just wanna have everything on hand so i don't have to make a bunch of trips for extra stuff. Thanks

If you put a clean container under your lower radiator hose, you won't lose much. Just eye the level when you refill it and all you may need is distilled water.

I'd do an oil change if it hasn't been changed in 5,000 miles (along with oil filter).


It may be your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others.

You should get close to a 5 gallon pale of coolant. Find a clean bucket and drain into it and you wont lose any.

Will do guys. Thanks. How big of a pain is the EGR delete? I'm use to working on 6.0's.

I'm figuring I can do the EGR and DPF delete in about 8 hours if all goes well.

I got a guy here that does the EGR deletes for 400$ he took 3 hours to do it, with the cab on. while he was doing the EGR I was doing the turbo back exhauts. He had 3 EGR deletes lined up. All i can say im glad I did the exhaust and not the EGR. I can tell you that the small 1/4" vac lines will most likely break, minedid in a few places, I got new bulk lines and replaced them and heat guy them into place. everything works great now.

EGR delete question

It's not real difficult just takes time and patience. I think I did mine in around 8 hrs, but that was almost a year ago now so I'm not 100% sure on the exact time.
