now questions. when i block the egr will i still need to replace the egr cooler or will the block off kit make this irrelevant?

is updating the fimc needed if my voltages are ok?

i am open and really would like any advice you guys have. i do not have have any personal exp on diesels and i love my truck and want it too last forever.

keep in mind i only have 90k miles and it is an 05.\

also there is a small cooler just infront of the condenser right in between the fog lights not sure what it is cooling the lines run up between the radiator and condenser. just wondering if it is stock of previous owner installed will take pics and post when i get some day light.

thanks in advance guys. this forum is probably one of the most helpful that i have seen and i have been through alot of different vehicle scenes.

That's a nice looking truck man! The little cooler down in front betweenthe foglights is the power steering cooler. It is located there on 03-05 models and up higher on 06-07 models. Your list looks pretty complete, the only things I would add to it are a fuel pressure sensor for the CTS so you can keep track of your fuel pressure and a coolant filter which should help your oil cooler last longer. Since, I don't see anything about studs or head gaskets, I assume your EGR cooler has not ruptured. In that case, it should be fine, but for that kind of money, why not just delete the EGR entirely, and leave the valve in so it doesn't trigger a CEL?

I will delete egr completely if it is the better option of the two. I do not live in an emissions state so there is no need to worry about any of that. Like I said I d ont want to do anything that I may not need to do. Thanks again for the feedback.

Deleting the EGR is better IMO, it's just a little more work. I also notice that the truck has a K&N intake. I suggest you get rid of that too. They are known to let too much debris into the engine, which is bad for the turbo. My truck also came with one, and I just replaced the filter element with a higher quality one from AFE.

What's with the tube that goes from the CAC pipe over to the intake elbow?

Great Looking Truck!!!



I suggest getting a coolant filter from Fred @ PMM

Aftermarket Diesel Performance Products | Performance Machine Manufacturing


Their coolant filter is cheaper and IMO better because it does not require any cutting of factory coolant hoses for installation like other companies do.

I just got it and it looks great!

Toomuch03 thanks for the.input I will probably just go.with a egr deletion and will get an afe filter for the intake. The line going from cac to elbow was added by me because I kept blowing off plugs off the nipples that were put there by previous owner. I dont think its hurting anything but its keeping me from having a boost leak untill I figure out what I am gonna do about them.

Sixostroker I will take your advice on the other coolant kit and go.with it. I am tryi.g to.save money but also.want to get everything done before may when I move to montana.

Thanks again guys for.the.input it is mich appreciated.

I'm willing to bet the one on the CAC pipe was for a boost gauge sensor. The one on the intake elbow... nitrous ???
