Depends on your local emissions laws. If you are allowed, delete that sucker. I waited to delete mine, and now it's in the shop with a crapped out EGR cooler, gunna be deleted now..

I got Sinster, that's just what the shop I'm at uses. Others will chime in I'm sure, you can check with some of the site vendors, most carry one. 05-07 will throw codes when you delete the EGR, will require a SCT to turn it off.

Ill be getting an 03 will that throw a code, it also comes with a Banks PDA tuner would i be able to turn it off using that or need an SCT or other custom programmer? FCDP sells the block off kit would that be the same as a delete or do i need the full delete kit they sell for $800?

Seems i can go with the Bulletproof delete but it will still throw a code, If i go the delete route I wont be needing an oil cooler kit correct?

I'm not sure about the 03, since I have an 05. Same with the Banks, I'm not sure, but regardless your truck would be better off with custom tunes w/ SCT. But that's a whole other subject. If you still need a cooler because of emissions then go bulletproof, if not and can afford FCDP's full true delete go for it, it's the best. But you'd be fine with this from MKM Customs SCT X3 & EGR Valve/Cooler Delete Combo and yes it's wise to replace the oil cooler while in there. Might save a headache later

Ya I was either going to go with the Bullet proof EGR tube delete or Sinister which one is better? And who should i go for to get an oil cooler? Im definitely going to run an SCT and sell the banks, But I want the SCT that has the gauges so livewire I believe?

Both BP and Sinister are good, and a ford OEM oil cooler is all you need. On MKMs website they sell a basic solutions package deal which includes sinister EGR delete, ford oil cooler, all the gaskets you'll need for the job. You could either get the livewire or run an Edge Insight for gauges, that's what I do. I've never used a livewire, someone else might be able to give pros/cons on it.
