Whos freking EGR HASNT leaked yet?

is that even possible? christ!

06 F350 c/c we have had 126k on it.. was prob leaking for a while, blew a H/G eventually late 2010 and finally got it all built back up.

06 F350 ext cab "red truck in my sig" has 68k on it, this truck was built 6 months before the 06 C/C we had just rebuilt... but its been blowing white smoke on and off for almost a year, been to dealer 5 times.. each time, they said they cant get it to smoke :/... of course the 5yr warranty was out 5 months ago now... so on goes the Spartan EGR delete today! My guys took it apart and coolant is all over the valley of the block under the EGR.. oil was leaking from the oil discharge return tube under the turbo too so putting new 0 rings on that as well. Ill be thrilled when all our 6.0Ls are running in top shape again!

Now just waiting for our 07 F550 6.0L with 60k on it to start leaking.. BUT when the C/C 06 got its bulletproof egr cooler, we ordered TWO so i have our plan all ready for that truck too! What a PITA..

If i ever find a 07 Lariat outlaw C/C long bed out there or a dark blue or bright red one, i swear, im gonna already assume..

1. full exhaust system
2. EGR delete
3. Intake "if higher miles"
4. Injector upgrade "b/c factory ones always start missing sooner or later"
5. Turbo upgrade, something in the $2000-3000 price range
ARP studs & head gaskets if i need to "after it blows a gasket for any reason
6. SCT tuner/tune/xtreme screen lol
7. Bulletproof diesel oil cooler upgrade kit $1800ish, yeah ouch
8. Trans deep pan

Mine works fine, but the egr valve is unplugged so it doesn't get all that hot.

just unplugging the valve isnt doing anything for ya. exhaust gases are still going into the cooler just like they did when you valve was plugged in.

also, i believe fan speed is dependant on the egr valve being plugged in.

I think the stars were aligned when my truck was built.

07 f250- 139k. Factory egr, turbo, injectors, studs everything. I took to a local shop, ran a full diagnostic, said it was in the top 3 of the 6.0s theyve seen condition wise and internally. Nonetheless, Im putting an egr delete in soon. Ive had to replace a waterpump (right after my ELC swap). But cruising 70 i see a 5* delta and about 1* idling.

trust me i knock on wood everyday! haha
