First Coast Diesel Performance, in my opinion, has the best egr delete available. Also, I would recommend using River City Diesel headgaskets with ARP Head Studs.

You can still bore out the head with the ARP studs... Assuming you delete the EGR the high strength head bolts aren't required.

An EGR delete will slightly lessen the chances of blown gaskets. But whoever told you it totally eliminates blown gaskets is A) Either a liar or B) Doesnt know what they are talking about

Dave is dead on, iEGR deletes will lessen your chances or reduce the risk of blowing headgaskets but it will not prevent blown headgaskets, you can take that to the bank.

Talk about fantasy world ............

The main issue with any debate is longevity. One data point on one dyno, on one day (but I really even doubt the validity of this) .....

Torque-to-yield bolts are just as the name describes. They stretch - a little bit at a time. Each time they stretch they weaken. A little bit at a time and then they start leaking. Happens very slowly at design cylinder pressure and temperatures - assuming that the torquing was correct, the heads and deck were flat, etc. Even though it happens slowly, it still happens.

Eliminating the EGR system can keep coolant out of the intake and it can reduce the likliehood of turbo sticking. These are good things for sure, but there are many other ways that overboost can occur and combustion temperatures can soar.

Studs are a requirement for LONG-TERM reliability - even stock.

I think the point was a stock block 6.0 could pull 700 hp. Not that a stock 6.0 produced 700hp. Coolant in the intake increases head pressure which when combined with chipped engines leads to head gasket failure. EGR delete "eliminates" coolant in the intake mfld. Obviously there are other sources of head gasket failure, i.e. the head gasket/

always best to start a new thread.
sounds like you screwed up a injector while doing the other work.

I have an 05 F250 and i noticed I was losing coolant. It has the banks big hoss kit. I did some research and decided to go with the erg delete kit for 150$ on eBay. Just got my truck back and now it is running like crap. Before it ran fine and now it has a 20% miss to it. The coolant system is over pressurizing. We took it for a drive and the harder you get on it the higher the air pressure. I think i have a bad head gasket? My truck is under warranty but I'm unsure if the new egr delete kit will void it or not?? 97,000 miles banks kit was put on around 45,000 miles or so. does anyone know if this kit voids warranty or will they not notice it when i bring it in for tests?
