New 6.0 owner

Hey guys,
I just bought a 2006 f250 fx4. I was wondering if there is a way to determine if a Egr delete system has been done without tearing anything apart? I am new to the diesel world and appreciate your help.

Thanks

to the org! Looking into your cab, look on the left side of your intake manifold ( the U shaped part ) then look straight down underneath the intake manifold, into your valley. If your EGR cooler is thier you'll see it run the firewall to the front of your intake intake manifold

On the passenger side of engine, between the turbo and valve cover, and under the intake manifold/turbo. You will see a hose (usually blue). This hose connects the oil cooler to the EGR cooler and/or EGR cooler delete.


In the first pic below, the yellow "X" on the tubing is what a EGR cooler delete looks like. In the second pic below, the yellow "X" is on a factory EGR cooler. Notice the difference, the EGR delete does a full horseshoe turn of 180*, The OEM cooler does not horseshoe.

If the truck doesnt have a tuner of some sort(SCT) and it had an egr delete, then there would be a check engine light on. So if there is no light and no tuner then most likely you do not have a delete.

Egr

Thanks for the input guys. I am picking the truck up on Saturday and driving it to NJ from Florida. I did purchase a edge evolution and will hook it up for the ride home to monitor the engine. I was hoping it would have been done already.

Without mods to the motor don't use power levels 3 and 4. You could have hg issues. I run power level 2 full time. Much better fuel mileage. And it scoots along much better then stock.

Unfortunately this doesnt always work.

Take my truck for example the EGR is deleted yet the cooler still appears to be there
