egr delete

Going to do an EGR delete on my truck soon. I have 108k miles, and pretty much bone stock except for my lift and tires. Was just wondering if their was anything else that I should do while I'm in? Also should I get a tuner (edge cts) or can I go a different route? Thanks in advance.

Get gauges/monitor first to check your ECT and EOT delta, this way you'll know if you gotta replace the oil cooler while your in there.

SCT X-3 with custom tunes is the only way to go with the 6.0, most guys use either the ScangaugeII or Edge Insight CS/CTS for gauges.

Yep, coolant flush, egr delete, rebuild oil cooler, refill with ELC coolant.

Don't do any of it till you have a monitoring solution and know what condition your truck is in. The dollars you save will probably be your own.

What year is the truck and what do you do to keep the check engine light off after a EGR delete? Heard there are tuners that can keep the light off, is that true?

Yes.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

Early 6.0's wont throw a Code. Some 05's will. My 06 threw a code for "low flow" and will need to be tuned out.
I used the kit where you get a cap for the exhaust pipe and leave the EGR where its at plugged in. I just did a cheapy Ebay kit.

Why either the Edge CS or the ScanGauge II for monitoring? Why not the SCT DashScan? Seems like everyone likes the SCT for tuning...and the Edge CS/CTS for monitoring...but I never hear much about the DashScan for monitoring EOT/ECT etc.

The Dashscan is out dated and don't monitor as much as the ScangaugeII or CS/CTS. Dashscan won't do FICM volts, VGT cycle, EGR cycle, ICP,IPR, ect,ect.

No to Dashscan!!! Hate to say it but that was not one of SCT's best pieces of work. The ScanGuage II is fantastic for data monitoring.

Just saw a post this morning about a guy that had a 2004 6.0 and it set a check engine light for EGR insufficient flow after installing a delete. So the rule of only 06 and up and deletes isnt always true. IMO
