with egr delete do you leave in the egr cooler...?

I am trying to figure things out and just trying to learn. If I do a EGR delete, do I just leave the EGR cooler in place and it is just bypassed or do I need to take out the EGR cooler? Thank you for the help.

An egr delete is deleting the EGR cooler. The egr valve can stay in place in the intake.

So if you do a EGR delete, you still have to take all the intake and everything offof the motor ? I guess I am just not understanding. I have searched and I havent found an answer to my question, so sorry for asking if it is a dumb question, but I am just trying to figure everything out. If with the delete you have to take everything off still wont it be better to just replace the EGR cooler with a better one then deleting it? Thank you.

Yes you will have to take the intake off to get to the egr cooler.

If you buy the Sinister kit (or similar) you will not need to remove the intake just lift the passenger side of the intake up. Bulletproof makes a kit where you continue to use the egr system.

If you live where they will check your truck for emissions you may want to go with the Bulletproof system.

There are methods of doing an EGR Delete that does not involve touching the cooler itself. Welding the scoop in the up pipe closed will effectively 'delete' the EGR system, without any modifications to the EGR cooler.

I agree with Sonds though. If you live in an area where they do emissions testing, the best option for you will be a bulletproof EGR and a tune to keep the valve closed during normal operation. That way, re-enabling the EGR system for testing is a quick tuning change, and requires no hardware changes.

Thanks for all the help. I feel like an idiot for asking, becuase after looking at the pics of the kits and the cooler, and looking at my truck I know understand. Thank you.
