Talking egr delete on the way!

Just ordered a sinister egr delete kit. How big of a pain is it to do? Ive heard i should replace the oil cooler while im in there why? Is there any way to tell if the cooler is bad? Can it be cleaned out? Im also thinking of doing a coolant filter setup. Can someone post pics of there setup or direct me to a place that sells them. Im one step closer to bulletproofing my 6.0

swapping out the oil cooler is just cheap insurance. you would have to tear down the engine again if the cooler turns out to be bad. im not aware of anyway to clean it out.
a coolant filter would be very wise after all that work to protect the new oil cooler.

dieselsite and fcdp both sell kits.

I did mine myself and it took about nine hours. I couldn't get my down pipe for my exhaust out of the way so it made it extra hard. I had to get my wife to use her small hands to reach between the firewall and the Y pipe to get those bolts. Make sure you have a twelve point 5/16" socket for the sinister kit. The new exhaust bolts are tweleve point WTF!! Half the bolts are metric also. Do yourself a favor and pull your pasangers side fender well, it helped me alot. You will have to yell at the EGR but it will come out without pulling the manifold. If you get stumped shoot me a message.

I did the whole setup myself, nights and a weekend. Just finishing up. I was missing a few tool and the exhaust bolts where a huge pain. Im guessing 22 hours for me altogether giving myself another 3 hours or so. I pulled the intake and cleaned it. Replaced the oil cooler, Deleted the egr, with a blockoff and intalled the new up pipe as well. Im cleaning the turbo and everything to check for problems as I install everything back into the truck. Good luck!

we can set you up with a SCT tuner that can eliminate that CEL on the dash.
