EGR Delete?

I have the EGR block-off plates installed right now, but I'm debating whether I should do the full delete. I went with the block-off plates so that I could return to stock easier if I needed to get warranty work done. I'm beginning to realize that a catastrophic failure will likely result in a denied warranty claim if an investigation is conducted.

What are the benefits of the full delete vs. the block-off plates?

What kind of delete kits are available and what are the differences between them?

What type of warranty repairs would require me to reinstall the EGR, the DPF, and return to stock tune for nearly guaranteed coverage?

I've got the sinister kit.
I was back and forth between full delete and block off plates.
I mostly did it because it cleans up the engine bay.

Plus, you can see the turbo hidden in the valley

"Stroker 8" and J_Alvarenga like this.

If anyone is debating on whether or not to do block off plates or a full egr delete, I would highly recommend doing the full delete. This past weekend I installed the full delete on my 2011 with 56k miles. Before the delete I just had the block off plates which I installed at roughly 15k miles, along with h&s race tuner and a 5" downpipe back exhaust. So I ran the block off plates for roughly 40k mi. While doing the full delete this weekend I noticed a large amount of black debris/soot(looked like black paint chips) in the hard coolant line that comes up between the egr cooler and intake manifold. I believe that at some point when running just the block off plates that the egr cooler got too hot and blew causing soot to get into the coolant. I will be installing a coolant filter ASAP.

On a side note, does leaving the cover on your air box equal better throttle response? I have seen mixed reviews on this the Lid on, Lid off debate?

Do you ever worry about having to return to stock? I appreciate the input.

That's good advice. Thanks!

Good question. I'm interested in this as well.

U would think that the egr cooler would actually stay cooler since there's no exhaust going through it. Stay same temp as engine.

Ya I would think so too, just not sure what else could have caused me to have that debris build-up in the hard coolant line. Does anyone have any theories as to what would cause this? Maybe debis from the casting of the block?

Never, I'm at 146k. All work done is by me.
