To delete or not - that is the question

My question is i've read alot about egr delete and coolant swap with a filter. I have a snap on solus scanner and tells me that my eot and ect temps are exactly the same. Do you guys think i should remove the cooler or just swap the coolant and the filters and moniter the temps?

Its a 2003 round cooler and the truck has about 65000k on it.

any advice would be appreciated and keep up the good work!! New fan and spreading the word up here in canada!!

Cheers

If it were me (and I did) I'd address the problem BEFORE I had problems. If you have emissions, Bulletproof diesel EGR cooler, if not delete. Flush cooling system thoroughly with Restore and Restore+ and install a good ELC coolant. Replace your oil cooler, and you are done. My 2004 was running perfect, the cooler was unplugged at 130K, but my feeling is why wait for it to happen and let my engine eat antifreeze. I want to be one of those guys that goes 500K miles on stock head bolts. It is possible if you keep your turbo clean, and engine free of ingested coolant. Mine is deleted btw.

those temps are telling you your oil cooler is in check, i'd just delete the egr and flush the cooling system and add a coolant filter

Delete the egr cooler if possible, install a Bulletproof Diesel egr cooler if you can't delete it. Something is wrong with your testing procedure. The ECT and EOT WILL NOT be the same if you are testing right. You must test when fully warmed up at 65-70 mph while running at that speed for a while.

Sounds like a delete is the way to go. I assume they're all about the same. Like the sinister one, any thoughts......As for the test the temps would vary abit on the highway but were very close,never more than 8 degrees. does the outdoor temp have an effect on the temps as its ilittle colder around -10 c or 14f.
