EGR and states with smog requirements

SO I live out in CA and we now have to smog our diesels Has anyone figured out a way to fix the common EGR problems the 6.0s have and still keep your truck in smog passing condition? From the best of my knowledge I have to pass a visual inspection and the emissions tech guy with plug into my port to make sure my truck isn't throwing any emissions related codes. Right now I have my EGR unplugged but I know that only semi fixes the issues that can be created. Any info can help!

If its there you always run of chance of it going for anything but i have known alot of people who have them and run them hard for 40k plus and no problems. I was gonna do this but s.c. does not do smog test so with all that said i would 100% trust it. And is by far your best option for living in california.

oh and you will still have a egr valve so you will still need to do regular maint and clean it now and then, but egr valves are easy to clean and are only 250 about to buy brand new.

Got it. Do you guys know what I can expect as far as an installation cost for the oil cooler and upgraded EGR cooler? Just curious, I know its a labor intensive upgrade

depends on your shop, the shop that has mine right now is great they were gonna do bullet proof system egr cooler, oil cooler and all gaskets with them suppling the parts for 1200 so it was like 400 in labor, they are doin the delete, serpentine belt, oil change, coolant flush, and overall check of the truck for 611 with them supplying only coolant. Hope this helps

You can do a "sneaky bypass" which retains all the parts but effectively block off the EGR. It essentially involves blocking off the EGR cooler by welding plug into the end of the passenger side up pipe where it connects to the cooler. This and disabling the EGR itself amounts to a bybass of the EGR and most of the benefits of a delete. The downside is you still have coolant in the EGR cooler which can still rupture and leak on you. Something else to consider.
