Let's see. What if something like dust and dirt gets into the EGR cooler. Could it get all the way to the valve? Then How do you get it out when doing your delete?

Are you planning to have the intake manifold cleaned? I'm just thinking out loud here, I don't know.

Me myself? I wouldn't run like that.

Maybe pound in a freeze plug in the end of the cooler? Can that be done? From that angle? Don't know. I'm just processing this thought. And an interesting one at that!

Have a great trip!


Different question. Have you checked your ECT/EOT temp differences? How are they running? Why I ask is you might want to look into changing your oil cooler at the same time as your egr delete.

I really wouldn't suggest it without a block off for the egr cooler.

Ok thanks for the info. I too was wondering about the dirt getting in the system. My EOT and ECT are 5-6 deg. From each other. But when I have it all apart I'm going to do studs too so I'm going to replace the cooler and do all the upgrades I can. I installed a diesel site coolant filter over the weekend so should keep my oil cooling from getting to bad.
