6.7 owners that have done a complete EGR delete?

I am just curious how many 6.7 owners on here have done a complete EGR delete and at how many miles? Also have you noticed an overall improvement in your truck? Did you do the delete yourself? Thinking about going all the way on mine, just hesitant for warranty reasons. Thanks for the feedback in advance.

10-15k here and no problems but improvement yes. It's smoother and louder and better mpg. And I did it in my driveway in two hours .

So am I to understand that you were able to do a complete EGR delete in 2 hours? So raising the cab was not necessary?

Just do the H&S EGR blocker plates in case you did need to bring it in. Thirty something bucks and 15 minutes of work. Yes on the MPG improvement.

That's right 2 hours in your driveway and it's all deleted. It is really easy and best for your engine . You should see the soot and crap your engine breathes with it on. I prefer only cold clean air in my engines.. No cab off at all. Everything is easily accessible under the hood

So what are the advantages or disadvantages of doing the blocker plates vs the complete delete?

I Think what he's saying Bro is to just block the EGR instead of removing it all together incase ya have to take it in for warranty work.....

The delete's are on the Exhaust Pipe....

Some People Do the delete's and Remove the EGR altogether......That suckers about 25 lbs i read....and removing it really opens up the Passengers side of the motor....
