Just ordered H&S

Ordered the 5" stainless exhaust DPF delete with a 6" tip, and the Black Maxx programmer. For, ahem, "race" purposes, of course.

I opted not to get the EGR delete since it disables anyway with the chip. Any opinions on that either way? I've heard some say that removing it does help with engine heat buildup, but on the other hand, if you have to go in for engine warranty work, they start to look at you strange when things are missing from the engine bay...

How about an intake kit? What do you guys like?

youre doing a dpf delete 5 inch straight exhaust and a programmer... you dont think the dealer is going to notice something off an deny the claim anyways? Do the egr delete it can only help. If you plan to do any warranty work i would switch everything back to stock when you have problems, the egr delete isnt that hard to do at all.

Honestly, I'd be surprised if my dealer notices DPF has been deleted from the truck. It's a city dealer that sells a lot of Focuses, Tauruses, etc, and they couldn't even figure out how to reset the check oil light. I'm thinking if they didn't notice that, they wouldn't notice the DPF is missing.
Ultimately, I'm not terribly concerned about warranty. The mods I'm doing and the way I drive aren't very likely to cause much damage to the truck... I just hate the Urea system and all it entails, plus the extra weight the stupid stock exhaust adds. Not Ford's fault that they had to include it...
The EGR delete looks like it could be a lot of work for a system that's not activated anyway, removing parts, crawling under and above the truck, draining and adding coolant...

Incidentally, if I do the EGR delete and save the coolant in a very clean covered bucket with no residue of any kind, could I re-use that coolant? The truck only has 15,000 miles on it. I'm thinking I could, but maybe I should get some extra coolant on hand from my dealer.

H&S sells the tuner with or without pyrometer. Get the one with and purchase just the EGR BLOCK OFF PLATES, instead the the one that removes it (which is labor intensive). The block off plates are pretapped for the pyrometer to be placed into it.

Ah, gotcha... well, it may be too late. I already ordered the kit. I ordered the H&S Black Maxx tuner, EGR delete kit, 5" DPF Delete exhaust (with muffler).

SO... does anyone have an opinion... to install the EGR delete kit, I'm supposed to temporarily drain out some coolant fluid. Assuming I use caution to make sure to not introduce dirt into the coolant, can I reuse it, or do I need to buy new?

There's a Ford dealer nearby but they likely won't be open when I'm working on the truck, so I want to have what I need on hand ahead of time!
