EGR question?

I was at a Diesel shop the other day talking to the mechanic about an egr delete kit. He said well I'll save you a couple hundred dollars. He popped the hood and disconnected a conection on the top front of my motor. He said that that will stop the gate from opening and bypassing the egr. My question is, is this true and should I run my truck like this? Please inform.

Disconnecting the EGR valve alone does nothing for you. You need the delete to eliminate the cooler.

Correct, all he did was unplug the EGR valve. That does not eliminate thew possibility of the egr cooler failing if the oil cooler clogs. I'd look elsewhere for a mechanic that understands the 6.o.

Got questions about your 6.0?

What they said^^^^

Also with certain year trucks and certain stradegies, when you unplug the EGR valve, it causes issues like clutch fan not getting to full RPM, and VGT won't cycle.

Is this related to the 05+ trucks? Just curious. My buddy did an EGR delete on his 06 and ordered Matt's SRL tune. Matt told him to leave the EGR valve in and connected because of the fan issue.

I really have no idea what year trucks it effects, and those who unplug the valve without having a scan tool to manually run the clutch fan, won't know either until cooling issues arise. Here is the link that Nylyon posted with this concern. Matt also asked me if my valve was plugged in, I told him I knew of the fan issues, and I told him about how another member and myself, had no VGT cycle when the valve was unplugged. Even with custom tuning.
