DELETE the EGR!!
my 6.0 is an 07 and its blown the HG twice. First time on OEM bolts, 2nd time on ARP studs, both times were because of my own fault in not deleting the EGR. Now i'm back on OEM bolts and i plan to delete the EGR as soon as it warms up, i've got everything i need. My studs will go back in down the road with some good HG's and she should be bullet proof.
i love the motor, the power, and beating all the dodge and chebby's in town on a "junk" motor.
but there are things you MUST do to make it reliable.
but that's with any car/truck that you want to make power with. hell, if you want to turn up anything 150+ hp over stock then your going to have to deal with repercussions and/or replace the weak points.
