if you have a 6.0 power stroke. I think It's the best thing you can do for your truck. it keeps the coolant from boiling over your over flow tank and as well for your HG.your motor will run cooler.
if you want to check one out we have three types.
here at Welcome to Outlaw Diesel :: Home we also have custom tunes for you.

It appears that you have a stock truck, so deleting the EGR will do nothing for you. Plus to do this you will need custom tuning to remove it from your trucks computer. If your truck is puking a little when its worked hard, remove a little coolant from the over flow bottle. Your max fluid level should be moved to the minimum line. If you plan on tuning this truck I recommend calling Innovative Diesel and getting a custom SCT Xcal3 with the EGR turned off. Then you can remove the up pipe from the passenger side and cut a thin metal disc to plug the EGR pass thru. A lot more important that the EGR delete will be head studs if your gonna push her hard.

No

As of now we don't an emissions test. We have emission standards and emissions inspecion. All they do is look to see if you CAT is still there and might look to see if your EGR valve is installed. I don't know how your part of CO is but most inspection stations could care less, and if you do, keep the CAT round for that once a year inspection.

If you want one of the most complete EGR system delete kit most everyone will agree this is one of the best kits out there.

Yeah they're usually just a bunch of pot head kids doing the e-tests here. I haven't gotten to do a diesel emission test yet, just gassers. I do have the cat, and will need to make a nice flanged delete pipe and then add some flanges to my cat so that I can make a quick swap

Where are you from, just curious what kind of laws you have?

Orginal from Uah, but now in North Carolina. Out here they could care less what is on a diesel. Most of the inspection stations don't even know that some diesels have EGR, and CAT's.

I still have my CAT wrapped and stashed away just in cast one day I might need it. I would have get the pipes changed because I have 5" system and the CAT is 3.5" and the conetions are completely diffrent. But then again I don't ever plan on needing it again.

So your saying that most test centers just do a visual inspection and then test for opacity and that's it? Colorado emissions are kinda strict, so I may get busted

I still have some pipe left over from the exhaust kit that I installed. I was going to take a portion of that pipe and weld it to my cat and put flanges on it so that the swap isn't a PITA.
