EGR delete from Alligator Performance

So i believe my egr cooler is starting to go. So i recenetly got a good deal on an egr delete from alligator performance. Now Ive been doing a lot of research on this and notice a few people mention brass fittings. They mentioned brass fittings not being very good but not much more and i cant find anymore info on it. Now my concern is, the kit that i got, which is a DRP EGR delete kit, has brass fittings.

Is it really that bad if it has brass fittings or is it more of a preference? I plan on getting this done soon so im just worried and dont wanna have to change it again later on. Thanks in advance everyone.

Brass fittings are fine. They are widely used in tractor trailers for air. They are currently being used as coolant fittings on egr coolers. I only see the hose clamps leaking nothing wrong with the fittings.

Awesome, thanks for the help guys. And too be honest i wasnt planning on changing my oil cooler. My reasoning being that my deltas are usually no more than 7* apart, and since I am on a budget, i cant see myself spending more to fix something that isnt necessarily broken. Although i could be wrong lol.

brass and steel are NOT compatable... the two together create Galvanic Corrosion... but will you have an issue? i dont think so.

Well any good brass fitting should be coated to prevent this! And I say good fitting!
