Delete vs Bulletproofing?

Believe it or not, I couldn't find any posts specifically about a 'vs' in this situation.


What thoughts do you guys have in this?

:Editing OP for clarity:

Those who have done an EGR delete, or those who have done 'bulletproofing' (like what is offered by 'BulletProofDiesel.com')..
Which did you do, and how do you feel about the decision after the fact?

TIA

More specifics would be good. What do YOU mean by bulletproofing? Adn you're just looking to delete the EGR cooler?

IF you are talking about the Bullet Proof Diesel kit than I say only if you are in a state that does inspections for it. If not then save the $$$ and delete it, more money for some more goodies.

Maybe I need to do some more reading.

I have to head to the office, but I will reply with more specifics later.

Are you talking about getting a Bulletproof EGR Cooler vs. an EGR Delete?

If so, I vote Delete, if you dont have to pass emissions. Keep the exhaust gas where it belongs--in the exhaust

Ok. I have some more time to reply.

Yes I am talking about a full EGR Delete vx the BulletProof Diesel kits.

And instead of getting into specifics, I think I will instead as for what people have done, and how they liked it comparatively speaking. Happy with it? Regret going a certain way? Those kinds of things.

I think I am going to elect to make a decision about the EGR sooner than later, and I guess I just want to hear more input about what options people have gone with, and how they have enjoyed or regretted it.

Rather than just 'which is better'.

As far as emissions go, I currently live in Indiana, which doesn't have any checks. But I am moving the family to Colorado later this year, and I do not know about Colorado's emissions laws yet. Hence, legal is better. Unless I find out Colorado is just as lenient as Indiana.

I'm still wondering exactly what you're asking. EGR delete, or a Bulletproof diesel EGR cooler

Depends on where you're planning to move to in CO, some countries don't have emission, while most do. Where are you moving to? When you get here, be sure to check out the CO chapter of the ORG

EGR coolers fail 90% of the time because the oil cooler clogs, and starves the EGR cooler for coolant

I have the FULL Bulletproof solution with EGR cooler, and I LOVE it

I went with the fully Bulletproof setup (Bulletproof EGR cooler and Bulletproof Oil cooler) in order to avoid having to deal with these issues any more and have been MORE than satisfied. We have emissions to deal with every year here in Arizona (just had mine done as a matter of fact), so the conventional delete isn't something that we choose to do and I figured that it might limit my ability to sell my truck if it had a delete on it. My opinion: Go with the Bulletproof EGR cooler and you can quit worrying about it.

PS. I tried to do a sneaky delete long before there were the options that exist today and my EGR cooler still ruptured. Turns out if your oil cooler is clogged bad enough, you can heat soak your EGR cooler enough to get it to rupture. I haven't heard of this happening to anyone with the more modern EGR deletes, so maybe mine was just related to the style of delete.
