EGR Delete Hose

Went to move my truck today and found 4 puddles of coolant under the truck. Looked underneath and it was dripping from the back of each head. After a little 6.0 induced paranoia and panic , I opened the hood and found that the EGR delete coolant hose was leaking. It was my first guess b/c of the way it was leaking down both sides of the back of the engine. Had to be coming from up in the valley. Good thing when I deleted the cooler, I positioned the clamps so I could tighten them without tearing into it again. It's a Dicadsolutions kit, so who ever has one, you may want to check the hose clamps b/c they both were pretty lose. I deleted in December 2010 so it has not been very long since. Anyways I put up a pick of what I found under the truck. Two puddles closest to my feet were from last night and the others must be from a few days ago when I last drove the truck.

I use the IPR research delete kit and it uses the factory blue tube. Big bonus in my book but I still keep my eye on it. None of these kits are totally fail proof
