I would do the BPD egr cooler. There is no real gain from the intercooler.

EGR cooler failure can cause big problems. Surely do the EGR cooler first. Just remember the oil cooler is the real problem. Replace that as well.

You can weld the EGR up-pipe closed for cheaper than an "improved" cooler. Get the intercooler...

Damn your talking 2 totally opposite things. I would get the EGR/oil cooler system squared away first since it can leave you stranded or even harm your engine when it fails.

Assuming your ect and eots are ok I would weld the cooler shut and buy intercooler. Are your egts too high or just want to keep pedal to the metal longer?

Thanks for the info. I guess I should clarify more, I live in denver and when I drive over some of the passes I see my EGT's get pretty high, I've seen it pass 1400 briefly so I am wondering what would help lower them during these trips. I have the exhaust and intake. But I do know the oil cooler and egr problems, I am going to get a new oem oil cooler, and the bdp egr. Guess I was just wondering if any after market intercoolers are worth it, or would water/meth be a better route?

What programmer are you running to get that high of egt? Are you pulling a trailer?

I also agree with the other post. It is a waste of money to buy a egt delete. You can have your up pipe welded shut or your egr welded close with freeze plugs for under 50 bucks. Spend your money on the oil cooler and turbo drain. Head studs are a must.

Sorry I should answer your original question. I run the Banks Techni- Cooler and the Snow Performance mpg max. I have several trailers but when I pull my heaviest trailer the Banks cut 175 deg off of my egt's. I use to have to run the edge in tow. Now I can run with setting number 3. Any more than that the programmer will back down. The mpg max is really hard to control. Too many variables. I need more time to adjust. I have noticed maybe 25 to 30 less but unless your on flat ground it's hard to tell at that little amount.
