EGR delete questions

Why should I do an EGR delete on my 06 6.0?
Can I ever get rid of the code that BD's kit says will come up?
How hard do you think the install will be?
I'm pretty mechanical and have ability to have the truck down for a couple days as I have a work vehicle.

I hate using the search option too because there is so much information on this forum about this topic. But keep looking you will find what you are looking for.

#1. You should get rid of the egr system so you dont leak coolant into your engine, It gets rid of a week link that some say may be the reasoning for popping the head gaskets.

#2. Get a custom tuned SCT that will solve any CEL that come on.

#3. It is not to hard, the hardest part for me was getting the uppipes and the down pipes to all line back up so you dont have exhaust leaks or any rattles .

This is all fine and dandy unless you live in California or other states that require or will require smog visual checks.

I feel your pain man, I have an 05 f250, and Im looking right now. All I know is that if youre getting your work done at a shop, you might want to look into getting the head studs done right away, while the top is off the motor.

EGR failures is one of the main leading cause to blowing headgaskets, so delete the EGR cooler will help immensely reduce the chances.

Also a custom tuned SCT can disable the CEL that will happen on the 05^ style trucks.
