I got my IPR EGR delete n stock oil cooler late Friday afternoon! Had the top end all torn apart n cleaned up already,pulled the HPOP to do a STC upgrade but it was already done(or do 05 6.0s come with it?)so just pulled the cover n resealed that .Also changed the screen ,o-rings on the IPR and a new updated turbo drain tube while i was there.
I want to thank who ever it was that posted a link to seniormastertech on youtube,had all the info and specs i would ever need ,plus he lays it out fairly well on how tho do everything.
I also want to thank Vince at IPR on a outstanding product,quick friendly service,and a price that is damn hard to beat .I did a lot of research before buying a kit and the parts he produce looked and performed outstandingly.The stock style 1 inch thick flange and quality of welds was the selling point for me .( I am nuclear grade 6-g high pressure pipe welder for Siemens with over 30 yrs of welding and fabrication under my belt)
You can tell by the seat of your pants that spool up is quicker,throttle response improved a lot ,and the MPGs took a nice jump.
This was a weekend job that was well worth the piece of mind ,just grab your nuts n get in there!!!
Good to hear that you were able to tackle the project yourself. About how many hours did you have into it.? I am thinking of purchasing a 6.0 and would be doing all the same upgrades that you completed.
99.5 F250 ECSB 4X4
MBRP 4" TB
4 pos chip, 50-75-110-140
Suncoast Trans, deep pan
6.0 Trans cooler
To be honest I piddled around when I did it,if I had to bang it out I would say if you have any mechanical skill at all you could do it in a day.I took my time cleaning the intake with a bottle brush and did the oil cooler housing in the kitchen sink!
Then again you could get hold of Benny Gooding there in Emment or Yale and he would know some one to do you a good job.
Do me a favor n run over to Lapeer n kick my wife in the *** would ya?
I concur %100 on that statement.
The stock cooler is only a temporary fix till I install a external air to fluid cooler.Talked to Vince and he said he will have one on the market soon,just waiting to see what kind of set up it will be!
