Going to probably attempt my EGR delete myself, advice...

OK, I have read the countless threads on it, I have watched whatever videos I can find, I have even read downloadable instructions that come with most manufacturer's delete kits. I open my hood and stare in there visualizing everything I need to do over and over. Believe it or not my wife is even going to help because she's great at organizing as I tear things down. I want to have this done without making 50 trips to the hardware store for tools as I go or running into things I didn't anticipate which is where I turn to you. I am asking for those with experience to give me any advice on things they ran into that they didn't foresee. Not looking for step by step, just advice from the wise ones. Tools I should have, things I likely will run into that I didn;t think of, things that are going to give me grief unexpectedly, etc...

It's really not that hard of a job, just time consuming the first time you do it. Just basic tools, nothing special.

Some tips: when you disconnect the fuel lines, put a cable tie about 1" behind nut so it don't slide down the fuel line to a spot you can't reach. If you have a late '04-07, you don't need to remove the turbo. If you have to remove the turbo (03-early 04), soak the turbo bolts with penatrate.

An 18" or longer extension is really handy for the upper bolts on your new up pipe. A second pair of hands is also really help full.

Take pictures, label everything, and go slow and you'll be fine. These motors are more intimidating than anything. Heck, I replaced a fuel injector in a parking lot a couple months ago.

A pillow to lay over the hood catch will be a big help.... Shouldn't need any special tools except maybe a set of torx bits

Which Egr delete kit are u using?

U can do it without removing the intake ull just have to remove passenger side intake bolts and prob loosen the driver side a bit to get the intake up a little to push the cooler out of the intake
