Confused EGR Delete / Cooler

I'm a little bit confused here. Been looking at this kit on E-Bay, and I know everyone says to replace the cooler also when you have everything wide open.

Ford 6.0 Powerstroke EGR Valve Cooler Bypass Kit Delete: eBay Motors (item 310227249673 end time Jul-16-10 09:37:58 PDT)

Is this everything I need to do the job, or do I still need to buy the cooler and replace the stock one.

This gets rid of the EGR valve and by passes the cooler from what I understand? I'm I right?

Not a mechanic, but have a good diesel guy. I haven't discussed this wth him, thought I would come here first and ask.

Mods:
High Idle Mod
Reverse Back Up Camera
Aftermarket Exhaust
Edge Evolution
Big Rig lights
Zoodad Mod
EGR Delete
Bocar Push Bumper
Levelling Kit
Blue Spring Upgrade
PMM Coolant Bypass kit

Want:
New Steering Wheel

That is everything you will need. You wiill leave the EGR valve in place, but it can be shut off with a custom tuned SCT.

that will delete the egr cooler and egr valve. depending on what year your truck is you might get a check engine light, and/or and couple codes. its a very good kit. i would also rebuild the oil cooler and reaplace the hpop screen, and turbo oil drain. ( under the turbo ) its a very good kit. just had one put on my truck.

thanks everyone, I think I finally got it!!! But rebuiding the oil cooler is a good idea as well. So when I have the EOT on my gauges, this is what the oil cooler is doing is bringing down that temp? Right?

Don't have any problems with that at all right now or the $$ to do that, but I have a good mech. that knows what he's doing!!!

Yes the oil cooler cools the oil and that's what you are monitoring with EOT. The oil cooler rebuild kits aren't that expensive and a really good idea to do while you have it apart for the egr delete. Why pay for the labor twice?
