Just can't decide whether or not to delete egr
Hey guys and gals,
The title pretty much sums things up, I can't really decide if I should delete the egr with one of those 200 dollar kits or not.
My truck is a 2009 f350. I have a dpf delete pipe on order, spartan tuning, s&b intake, and will be running the stock exhaust system with the dpf delete pipe.
What I use my truck for is daily driving, I live 20 miles from the city, and most of the driving I do is empty on the highway/gravel, bit of running around the city, then highway/gravel on the way home.
I also plan to do a fair bit of towing our camper and boat around this year. Our camper is a 28 foot mallard, and our boat is a 19.5 foot four winns, and Im guessing the combined weight is maybe 11k.
My goals arent really for the truck to make huge power or anything like that. I hesitantly bought this truck to replace my supercab 2003 7.3 liter truck, and I would just like reliability and economy to shine above power. I realize this truck most likely wont get the same kind of economy my old one did, and Im realistic about it, so that really brings reliability to the top of my goals list.
Long winded post, so with the mods I have and am planning, should I buy one of those 200 dollar ish kits (with the block off plates) and delete my egr? Or since I plan on towing a fair amount, quite often in the summer, should I leave the egr on and utilize the wastegate benefits?
Ive read and read and READ egr threads, and just cant seem to decide, so I thought i would post a thread of my own. Thanks.
