egr cooler delete question

ok names tom and ive been lurking around on this forum for a couple of months since getting my 07 supercab. Ive been having the dreaded no start when hot problem and from everything ive learned here id say that its a high pressure oil leak somewhere. Ive found a local diesel shop that will pressure test and pinpoint where the problem is and then ill take if from there. In the event that its a bad stc fitting or hpop i was thinking that as long as im in there id install an egr cooler delete. Funds and time at this point do not permit a new oil cooler or even a flushing of cooling system. Would it be of any benefit to just install the egr cooler delete as long as im in there if i cant follow it up with a flush and oil cooler replacement. Im looking to spend time and money wisely. Could my limited money be better spent on something else? My deltas at this time are currently within 10 degrees F.

If you don't mind taking the motor apart twice, then you should be good for awhile with a delta of 10*. Just keep an eye on your delta so it doesn't get out of hand.

so the question remains.... would there be any benefit to slapping on an egr delete as long as im in there to replace stc fitting if i cant at the same time replace oil cooler and flush coolant due to lack of time and funds??? ive currently got the egr valve turned off in my sct tune but im wanting to make the truck as reliable as possible within the limited monies available. would the money spent on an egr delete be better spent on say a free flowing turbo back exhaust just to help get some heat out of the motor?

yeah man....it's a GOOD time taking apart the top end......I did it twice b/c I did and EGR Bullerow proof replacement (delete will throw a constant engine light and I wanted to keep it legal in case of future resale)....
so yeah, do the delete while ur in there.....too bad on the oil cooler......you have it ready to go too after manifold's off.....and HPOP is in the back under turbo which has to come off too, so do STC fittings in HPOP if you can so you don't have to do it later

this coming from a non-mechanic who has done this several times on my 6.0
good luck man

If you have ever done this type of work on your truck, you will not want to do it twice.

Go on ebay and get an EGR delete with an up pipe. They're only like $150 and if you have the motor torn down that far you might as well take care of that problem.
