EGR Delete...Aluminum or stainless?

There are a couple EGR delete kits on ebay for about 300. One is 6061 aluminum and one 304 stainless steel. What are the pros and cons of each? what is the one to go with on a 07 F250 Harley Davidson 6.0?

Thanks for the help as usual this group is great.

I would go stainless, but the aluminum would probably be fine. I'd also go with the RCD kit which is cheaper now, just $360 or so.

Stainless or Aluminum will work equally well; your intake is cast Aluminum. 2003-2007 use the same kits. I just put the Sinister Diesel kit on my 2005. I don't have a tuner so, I cleaned and reinstalled the EGR valve to prevent check engine codes. There are no longer any exhaust gases flowing into the intake, so the EGR valve isn't controlling anything.

When you see all the soot in your intake manifold and imagine that stuff going into your combustion chambers, you'll be glad you are putting an end to it. EGR systems are just crazy to use on a diesel.
