Dicad egr delete leak??

Hey guys I have an dicad egr delete on my truck which I just had a new long block put in. I'm getting a coolant drip from where the pipe goes into the intake.

Has anyone else had problems with this? I'll likely take it back to my mechanic but I want some other experiences on it first.

The "O" ring may have been damaged when installing the coolant pipe. I don't know what material it's made of but I prefer Viton as it's a little firmer then OEM.

I had mine leaking because the two hose clamps weren't tight. Not sure if you're talking about that side or the other side with the o-ring without going out and looking at mine.

I'll try tightening the the one clamp I can get at, but the back clamp is inaccessible. I really hope that it the clamp and not the o-ring. I don't want to deal with getting my truck to the mechanic. 2 hour drive there and then dealing with getting home and then back.

Mine did it too. The o'ring groove was cut too deep. Call Dicad and they'll take good care of you. Called them at 10am on friday. They took my info and sent it to tech support. Tech support called within 10 minutes. They sent a new tube and o'ring overnight with saturday delivery,threw in an extra o'ring when I asked for it and gave me his personal cell # in case I had any problems over the weekend. It was on my door step before the step son got home at 7am. I agree with the get what ya pay for but thats the best customer service I've run across in a long time.

If I was doing it again I would go with the one piece kit. When I ordered it I did not realize how it fit together.

I wasn't crazy about how it looked when I got it, but it went together fine and hasn't leaked.

Mine leaked about 20k miles later, but fortunately it was just from the hose clamps. Tightened it up (way easier said then done given the location) and been good to go for the last 5k or so
