I would start by checking your oil cooler by monitoring your EOT and ECT. Do you have emissions or safety inspection? A EGR delete probably won't pass.

Good points. Start with "Why do you want to delete it?" And work from there.

You don't have to go bigger on the exhaust. And unless you are wanting to go "big" power, don't go over 4 inches in size. These motors still need some back pressure for the low end boost.

A turbo motor doesn't want or need back pressure, it wants an unobstructed path out. I agree a 4" is plenty big enough on the exhaust system.

I like the Sinister delete if you can delete it, if you can't delete it upgrade to the bulletproof egr cooler.

Newman made a good point in monitoring EOT & ECT. That's a must to let you know if you are developing a clogged oil cooler.

I bought the Sinister EGR delete kit off of Ebay back in January and I am very happy with it and they seemed to have the best price. One thing if you are going to do it yourself or not it might be a good idea to rebuild the oil cooler anyways while you have the motor taken apart that far.
