Question EGR delete or just disable

I am about to install an H&S xrt pro and dpf/cat delete. Was wondering what anybodys thoughts were on just letting the tuner turn off the egr and leave parts in place or should I go ahead and do the entire egr delete. Can the coolers still leak and cuase problems with the system just turned off ? Thanks for your advice.

I heard the coolers could still leak if left in place but I would like to know who this has happened too? Leaky coolers from turning them off and leaving in..

Unless you are concerned about needing to have the EGR coolers on for emissions testing or warranty work, I say get the delete kit. Your engine can still be damaged due to cooler failure even if the system is disabled.

Thanks I was kinda thinking I would probably need to do the delete. But it always helps to know what others think about a situation.

I am pondering the same thing. The egr delete would just about stretch me to the limit of my mechanical ability and would be a major thing for me to do. Then you have to worry about the ever increasing influence of the enviro wackos to force states to adopt stricter emissions regs. And even if your state does not do diesel emissions tests, what about when you sell the truck. Isn't that part of a vehicle inspection?

I would keep everything you pull off, because to a private seller its most likley a plus if u resale it but to a dealer it would be a down fall cause u affected the way it runs from the factory.

While I agree in principle, the search isn't the greatest thing in the world when you're reading through results 3 years old. Finding key information through the search is often difficult, I know because I use it often. It's also helpful to get fresh input on things. An answer today may not be the same as it was 3 months ago, or 1 year ago. As these trucks are on the road longer and longer and logging more and more miles updated information is a good thing. Now, as far as DPF / EGR deleting is concerned you're right, it seems that there's a new thread on the subject started every day. I suggest going back through several weeks worth of posts, that way you'll find just about every possible topic and the information will most likely still be relevant.

^^^^^^^^what he said times a million. Give some folks a break. Not everyone is completely familiar with the capabilities of this site. And it's always good to have fresh ideas and answers.
