EGR Delete done. That sucked!

I hurt like hell. My EGR cooler blew for no reason yesterday. Had 5 degree deltas and oil cooler is fine. I was planning on doing an egr delete in the near future when I had everything, new oil cooler egr delete, turbo oil lines. I had to get her back on the road now so my buddy and I did the DIY egr delete and welded everything shut. Had a total of 14 hours into it with running to town and getting parts and such. Getting the up pipe on and off was the biggest pain is the rear. I still have an exhaust leak where the up pipe connects to the turbo. I have no air tools and we had no more in us to fix it. I am going to drive it over to my buddies tomorrow where we can use an air ratchet to fix it. Should I just losen the up pipe bolts at the exhaust manifold then losen the v band clamp to the turbo then tighten it down first then the exhaust manifold? Those are a pain in the *** to get to also. An air ratchet should help. I got a 12 pack of busch light in me so I'm hittin the sack.

I am going to have nighmares with this image.

Looks like your having fun already. Don't forget more liquid confidence for tonight. I had the same problem getting her to seal up too. But according to the book if you had the up pipes off or loose you need to connect the turbo first then tighten the up pipe bolts to the exhaust manifold.

I've got all my parts laid out on the table in the shop. After we're done visiting on Christmas, I'm nosing in and draining fluids.

You now confirm it again, but I keep remembering this quote from Lumberg in another post

That is the best/easiest way to ensure it doesn't leak

you should invest in a top side creeper, it will save your chest knees and back from doing these projects.

Yeah tell me about, I learned all the hard way too. When I first did my EGR delete I had the same thing, extreme leak on the turbo downtube. I ended breaking the mormen clamp and read up a little. Loosen everything on the manifold up pipes and turbo clamp. Then lightly snug the turbo to the pedestal. Then crawl underneath and put some high temp silicon on the up pipes and hand snug those 4 bolts. THen climb back up and line up the downpipe to the turbo and tighten the clamp. Then go back underneath and torque out the up pipes, alternating from one side to the other. Then go back up and final tighten the turbo and clamp.

Its no fun when you do the EGR delete and then 13 months down the road you have to replace the oil cooler, lol that was me. Trust me on that top side creeper.

At the shop alot of guys use boat cushions to lay on. Also a lil trick is if the customer is super cheap but wants a EGR delete on. You can loosen the driver side bolts on the intake and take out the passenger side. Use a prybar and pop the EGR cooler out. The gaskets are re-usable and you dont have to pull the intake.

Any suggestions on where to get a decent one at a good price? I don't mind spending my money on high quality tools, but also like to get the best deal possible, since I have a lot of toys to buy for this thing.
