EGR Delete Questions

Which EGR delete should i get? Im new the diesels and I keep reading about 2 different things, something about a EGR blocks, that stops it, then i read something else about coolants. Can someone please help me on this, i tried searching the forums and couldnt figure out what to do.

I also read that you need a tuner to do an EGR delete, is that true?

Also what is the best place to order them from, thank you

You can buy block off plates for under $50 that will allow the coolers to be left in place. Or you can buy an egr delete kit and completely remove the coolers from the engine. Both require a tuner to turn them off, spartan, h&s, and sct 3015r or 9625or. Ebay, classifieds here or Rudy's diesel can hook you up with a tuner.

Several companies make egr deletes you just have to decide which one you want to go with. Sinister makes a nice one with the intake elbow that deletes the egr valve. Rudys also has one that's similar. Yes you need a tuner that is capable of doing the deletes. Some that are off the top of my head are h&s mini maxx, spartan, or if you can find them the sct 3015R or 9625OR. Depending on where you find the tuner new or used it will run you between $800-1900 plus the egr delete. Hope this helps

The EGR delete is not an easy job either just so you are aware I just had mine done with the Sinister kit its very clean and i was shocked what came off the motor and how it runs now. I want to say i was billed 6 hours labor to install the delete kit. I went with a mini max and 5 inch flo pro dpf and cat delete and the truck is amazing now seriously unbelievable difference

so to do the egr delete I basically need a tuner?

is this a good deal? and all I would need to do is relicense it for $250?
Spartan Diesel Technologies Phalanx Tuner with Delete Pipe 6 4L | eBay

also is there anything wrong with buying a used tuner?
and a lot of people (that don't have diesels) tell me that 6.4s can't run that much of a
tune (350hp) without stuff to start going wrong. is this true?

They are wrong, you can run a pretty big tune on a 6.4 without any major failures. Be thorough on oil changes, I recommend every 4,000 miles just to be safe.

The only major failures we see here at the shop with 6.4's is usually on stock trucks. Lots of lifter failures due to thin oil. Every time those trucks regen a little fuel gets past the rings and into the oil, over time it thins the oil out and you will have premature lifter failures.

Trucks that are deleted early on rarely have problems, not to say they wont but it's less common.

The only problem with a 6.4 is a stock 6.4

We have always used the H&S tuners and I have never had a single issue with them. I really like their Hot Damn tune for daily driving. I love their tow tunes.

I would highly recommend their tunes and their tuners

Haha! I wasn't trying to burn out, I was playing tug of war with a 4X4 Tundra and my truck is only 2WD, I got 'er done with the ol two fitty though!

The black marks it left behind in my buddies driveway are epic though and will be there for a long, long time!
