Or this:

Cornraker, how much money are you wanting to spend? What are your goals for your truck? What is currently done to your truck?

You can delete the EGR for as little as a $300 kit to a $1200 kit.

My goals are to make this thing as reliable as possible. I use it to tow my wood trailer which is usually around 8k lbs. I can't really afford to have the truck crap on me completely so i'm planning on putting some money into and try to make it more reliable. From what i've been reading, and EGR delete is a good place to start. Diesels are exempt here in MD so I won't have any issues with emissions. I also plan on installing a monitor like a Edge Insight to watch EGTs and the like. What do you think about removing the cat the muffler? The extra noise woudn't bother me but i'm wondering if could negativley affect anything?

Always nice to see someone else from Md. on the board. In order of execution I would first and foremost get your monitoring solution in place. You need to have some knowledge about what's going on with your truck before you start in. Once you have been able to monitor you ECT and EOT for a while and get a feel for the condition of your oil cooler you can start to make plans. If your oil cooler looks healthy I would recommend that you flush the cooling system and refill it with ELC coolant. The Ford Gold coolant is what causes the problems with oil coolers, egr coolers and head gaskets on the 6.0. Once you have the coolant changed I would drive it and keep an eye on things. You may not need to do anything else but put a coolant filter on.

I don't know why they call that an egr delete because it doesn't delete the egr lol. It replaces the oem egr cooler with their own which is a very good unit. Anyway, the Bulletproof stuff is top notch.
