installing an egr delete tomorrow

I have a 04 Harley Davidson Edition with 160000 miles and am now just have an egr failure. I purchased an egr delete kit from custom diesel and will be installing it tomorrow. I am mechanically inclined but was just wondering if anyone had any tips on performing this task. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

doing mine tomorrow as well. from what i gather talking to IPR, just take the time to rmove what is needed, INCLUDING the intake. clean it good, they said pretty straight forward to do, nothing real technical. they did say to snug everthing back together before any torquing just to make sure things line up good.

good luck, i am also doing a good coolant flush to start, and adding the IPR coolant filter to the system.

Before you disconnect the fuel lines at the fuel bowl, put cable ties (zip ties) behind the nuts so the nut don't slide down to the abyss.

You get the full delete pipe kit or just block off plates?? That will make a big difference.

I did mine without removing the intake. Saves some time not having to undo the harness, etc. My EGR cooler had not failed so intake was clean. That's all irrelevant now as I am about to do a complete tear-down for head gaskets.

be sure to label everything like bolts ect... helps when its time to reinstall keep track of the bolts on the intake as the ones with the studs on top need to be in the correct place to hold stuff down . and if u do remove the intake be sure to disconnect at least one side of the injectoe harness or you will break something . also a pillow to lay on and some kinda stant to stand on will help a great deal . good luck

^^^ Definitely nice to have something to put down for your knees and chest. I used one of the little garden kneeling pads and it works great.
