"New and Improved" EGR Coolers

I have been reading recently about a new bulletproof EGR cooler. Has anyone had any experience with these?

Are the stock EGR coolers on a 2006 6.0 improved over the stock ones of previous years?

The only "bullet-proof" EGR systems that I'm aware off are the ones that are on the shelf in your shop or in the garbage can!! I couldn't believe that someone could ever issue the statement that an EGR system is bulletproof!

All joking aside, Ford did change out the first round EGR coolers and go for one that is rectangular after the first year or so of the 6L's being out. So they have gotten better, but by no means have they perfected it.

Is this the cooler you read about? It doesn't say anything about being bulletproof, but it could be an improvement over stock.

I would be concerned about the reduction of the cooling capacity of the cooler with their design.

I don't think so. Mine went out two weeks ago. On my 07 with 25k miles

I just remembered: check out the new vendor Neal Performance. They have their own EGR cooler that they claim is near bulletproof.

Who knows, but I think I want to keep the EGR system working in my truck. Emissions testing is on the horizon.

So far mine is ok. It hasn't shown any signs of a fault.

I wouldn't be too worried about the lack of an EGR cooler affecting your emissions results. Someone on another diesel site removed the EGR system on his 6L over a year ago and had it tested in California and the exhaust was cleaner after the EGR system removal than it was before with it intact.

Living without an EGR system only makes sense! Diesels were designed to run on cool, dense air coming into the intake manifold.....that's why they all run Intercoolers. The fact that you introduce very hot gases into the intake makes no sense for a diesel engine.

Does EGR delete void the warranty? I bought a '05 with 71,000 on it. The engine is covered till Mar of '10 (I won't hit 100k by then) but I also bought extended warranty...

Yes it does.

I will say this, If it is a moving part, it will fail. The only bulletproof option it to delete the it will never fail because it wont be there
