Newly installed egr delete

So I finally got around to deleting my egr earlier this week. HOLY COW!! I completely underestimated this task. I figured go in pop out the degas bottle, remove the fan shroud undue a couple of bolts, wham bam thank you mamm, and be done. Had a gallon of gold coolant standing by for any lost in the process. HAHA started of well things were flying out left and right. Got to the first coolant plug install. Pretty much drained all coolant from that level up. So much for a gallon on standby. Got to the lower cooler and was stuck. I tried everything I could to remove the dipstick from the block but it would not budge. So after 3 hours of pulling and prying finally got fed up with it, pulled out the sawzall, and cut the coolant nipple off the cooler. After that it slid right out. I used RCD'S full kit with their elbow. Great product. I put everything back together filled the system up with tap water and drove a mile down the road to ford for a full flush. Overall I'm cut, beaten and bruised but really happy with the job. I guess just the satisfaction of doing the job your self.

Yes, I removed everything. Took me and my father inlaw 4 evenings to finish, but we got everything out. We ended up breaking the Y coolant pipe so that stalled us one night. Like you I expected it to go quick, I was wrong! Took a lot longer than I thought, I also did my dpf delete too so I was glad to get all that crap off the truck all at once.

That sucks, we kept a close eye on that pipe for that exact reason. Did you replace the manifold bolts or just reuse the ones you pulled out?

Haha that explains the extra bolts in the kit that I didn't know where they went. I could possibly be partially retarded :screwy:

Mine took me about 9 hours. I started after work on a Friday and thought I would have plenty of time. I also don't stop working on anything until the project is done. So come 2 am I had it all back together...
