Egr delete and turbo cleaning soon...HELP LOL

So I'm slowly gathering stuff to do my Egr delete. Got the mkm customs kit just ordered the turbo cleaning kit. Just got a couple questions...
1. How hard is the Egr kit to install?
2. Turbo cleaning is generally straight forward? Lol
3. Should I install new air to air boots?
4. I heard something about a vgt solenoid is a good thing to change
Thanks!

egr delete= time consuming, aggravating, pull your hair out frustrating, but, not that bad, just take your time and pay atterntion. Look on you tube, some great videos show you just how to do it. The turbo, mine has 196,000 and I just cleaned it for the first time, really simple, my concentric ring, I think that is what its called, was frozen to the housing, hence no variable geometry, cleaned and sanded and coated with never seize, works like a new one. I just used sandpaper and saved the money not buying the kit, works just as good. I wouldn't worry bout the solenoid, if it goes bad it is simple to change. How many miles on engine and have you flushed and changed to elc coolant? check your boots on the bottom side if they are still flexible and don't see any cracks then they are ok for awhile, might be better off savin your money for the really important items you are gonna have to eventually replace, just my opinion cause been there done that.

There is about 90,000 miles on the engine had the hg go at about 75,000. Replaced with stock gaskets and arps and replaced the oil cooler. Have all the stc fittings done. Haven't switched to elc yet. Gonna do that when I do the Egr delete.

Check your deltas before and after the flush. If they are at 15* or more you'll want to do the oil cooler at the same time and add a coolant filter as well.

I don't have an insight yet it's in the mail. Gonna do the delete then check my deltas. My cooler was replaced 10,000 miles ago. So I don't think it should be too bad.
