i want to do the egr delete myself

Since I moved and am no longer around my shade tree mechanic I want to do the egr delete myself. About the most in depth I've gone is the blue spring mod and would like to know what I should expect as far as

Time
Tools
Gaskets

And any other tips. I'm kind of scared to pull the turbo and hell even undo the clamp for that matter. Just because I don't want to get up a creek. Or break something or find something else already broke.

I haven't done my delete yet, but I pulled my turbo to clean it two weeks ago, not a problem, it was an early 04. I did not run into any problems like I read, it was suggested by lilpooh to lift and rotate the turbo slightly counter clockwise while pulling forward, it came right out. Going back in was alot quicker. I would suggest a 3/8 air ratchet, or cordless driver. Put antiseize on the turbo bolts when you go back in. I used an air hammer on the rachet handle to get the back bolt loose. Here is some pics.....

Not the best picture but you will understand when you get to the bolt. Backside bolt on the 03-early 04.


Right side bolt setup, just for more room.


Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

How hard is it to clean. I changed my airfilter today and got out the stuff that was in the back of the intake. Can only imagine what's in the turbo

I only cleaned the exhaust side, it was a pita because my air compressor is too small. I'm not sure how well you could clean it without a die grinder. It made a huge difference, and mine wasn't as dirty as i've seen.

Take the inner fender well out to get to the exhaust bolts easier. I've found it easier to just break the bolts and get new bolts to reinstall.

I deleted my EGR and installed a BPD Oil cooler and have never touched a diesel engine in my life! It is not brain surgery and can be done by anyone who is determined to get it done! I promise if I can do it anyone can do it! Just come to the .org for the info you need. And for my next project I plan on doing my studs solo also! In the words of Bo Jackson and Nike,"Just Do It!"

it is a lot more intimidating than it really is. a 10mm ratcheting wrench will favor the turbo bolts, take a good look around and you will see how to reach around the blind side of the turbo. i did mine twice in 8 hrs due to a leaking delte o ring.

BR READY FOR A BIG OIL SLICK, if you pull the intake all the way out. when youo pull the oil filter housing, it gets messy. you can do it with out removing the filter housing, but you cannot clean the intake.

If you loosen the filter cap the night before, you won't have any oil leak when you remove the filter housing.

Did mine (actully I went with the BPD upgrade, still on the fence if that was the way to go or not). Its reeley not that bad. And after doing the studs and the BPD oil cooler Im not so nervous if something else goes wrong. I now know I could probably deal with it.
