EGR delete kit

My hats off to Elite Diesel. I have a customers top end apart and did the delete kit since we were in it that far. Very nice product and good customer service. If you ever have to pull the hpop cover off, the EGR cooler is no longer in the way. I kept the EGR valve in so the computer would not throw a check engine light without a programmer. Now the EGR valve can open and close to it's hearts content and not dump nasty air into the motor. The intake was absolutely disgusting inside of it and whoever thought it was a good idea to dump dirty exhaust into the intake is a moron (I've been using that word a lot lately, I need to be more positive). I would've figured the goal to cleaning the environment would have been fuel efficiency, not making the vehicles get worse fuel mileage and also causing the engines to have higher failure rates.

I'm glad you like their kit. Just a FYI: some truck will still set the CEL even with the EGR valve installed and plugged in.

Them Moron(s) is the EPA and they have been hard at work shoving stupid ideas and mandates that essentially gave birth to the EXHAUST GAS RECIRCULATION circuit since oh.......say........1971 - 1972 circa. The death of the muscle car? The death of our fun today in the near future? That dirty nasty air has been and still is runnin through gasoline engines where it first originated. Most of the garbage present in the intake is engine oil that found its way there via a Positive Crank Case Ventilation System. This also found on gasoline engines since the dawn of time or near after but every engine (Gas or Diesel) since its idea has one. My point is that it is NOT Fords or Internationals fault and it is NOT a fault of diesel engines.

Is it in the engines best mechanical interest?? Nope. That is why there is the aftermarket and us crafty gearheads who eliminate the stuff for efficency, performance, cleanliness and reliability. The intake if you cleaned it will be gunked up within a few months if you haven't re-routed the CCV to prevent the mess.
