Help! Too many EGR Deletes to choose from!

I currently have a 2005 6.0 and have been having trouble with the EGR. I have decided that it is time to go with a delete and am having a hard time deciding between the different manufactures out there. The ones I am looking at are the GoGo Diesel, First Coast, River City, and the Bulletproof system. Please help me understand the differences so I can make a wise decision when it comes time to buy.

I know that if I do not put a tuner on it will throw some codes, so I also plan on adding an SCT tuner to the mix as well.

Stay away from RCD, bad reputation. I'd go with FCDP, Adam is a great guy to deal with, but any of the others are reputable as well

Gogo or FCDP. Two best kits on the market.

Without question. However they are also the most expensive on the market and both are irreverisble. If you have the money and are ok with having to buy a new intake manifold if you ever have to reinstall the egr because of emissions testing I would say Gogo is best (Gogo completely eliminates coolant flow in the intake) followed closely by FCDP. If you want a less expensive solution that leaves you the option of reverting back to stock easily if necessary Sinister make a very nice delete at a very reasonable price. If you have to keep your egr for emissions reasons the Bulletproof egr cooler is much sturdier that the oem piece and not nearly as likely to rupture on you. All of these have their place in the market. Only you can decide which one is right for you.

Sinister has a GREAT kit but as off this past monday they were on back order for about a week or so. Call Adam at FCDP he has a few options for deleting the EGR, not just the complete replacement of the manifold. But I would avoid RCD, they are a little shady to deal with and have been screwing a few fellow ORG members

I had an RCD, poor fit and then the O-ring on the cooler delete piece failed which caused an intake leak. Replaced the kit with a Liberator kit and am happy with it. I like that it uses factory style metal gaskets on the delete rather than O-rings.

Once I had the Liberator installed I finally got the EGR delete benefits of lower EGTs and my truck is running great.
