6.0L 40,000 miles
This forum has been great to read. I've read up a ton on the 6.0 engine. I previously owned a 2004 F250 6.0L SCLB 4x4. I had a mess of issues with it and sold it by 2006. Went to a 7.3 Excursion until it rusted away. It seems Ford cleared up most of the issues with the 6.0L by late 2005, and I actually enjoyed my 2004 when it ran properly. I am about to buy a totally stock 2006 F250 6.0L CCSB 4x4 with 40,000 original miles. I've seen that a total EGR cooler delete kit would be for off-road use only. This must be for emissions reasons in some (or all) states. So here are my questions...
Anyone know about specific state restrictions regarding EGR delete?
EGR delete vs. "tuning" the EGR valve closed. (exhaust can still enter the cooler but not the intake) If "tuning" the valve closed, should the stock cooler still be considered dangerous due to coolant particulates?
By sticking with the EGR system and installing the bulletproof cooler, how often should the EGR valve be cleaned?
With additional oil & coolant filtration, clean fuel, and a good romp once a week, does the EGR valve still require cleaning?
