Who will know if I delete

Being as I have emissions now every other year I am debating to delete the coolers(already bought the delete plates) or buy the bulletproof erg cooler and spend extra bucks. I would rather just delete..I am un familiar with where the coolers are at in the engine. Are they visable from looking inside the engine if i were to get an inspection? How will they know if I delete? Also if I were to delete the coolers would I be able to install the dpf for inspection without the coolers in there? Thanks

They are visible if you pop the hood. Can see the vertical cooler pretty well. A visual inspection will catch the EGR delete. If you delete/remove the coolers, you'd have to re-install them prior to being inspected. Best thing to do would be to buy a tuner that can turn the EGR off and leave them intact.

Are you sure Ben? Why do so many people delete? Just a precaution?

This is what Arron from Rudy's told me if I remember correctly, the 6.4 egr's are fine, it was the 6.0 that had all the problems. I think the 6.4 gets blamed for a lot of the problems the 6.0 had. I am slowly learning this!

Maybe someone can post a thread and ask these questions, I have too much heat on my back! lol

If I were to delete the coolers would I be able to install the dpf for inspection without the coolers in there? Also HAS ANYONE HAD AN EGR FAILURE WITH LEAVING THEM IN AND SIMPLY TURNING THEM OFF WITH A TUNER?

No. You need to put your truck 100% back to stock in order to pass an emissions test. In most places, they do a visual inspection as well as an emissions cycle test that measures exhaust emissions. This means you'd have to get rid of your tuner/set your truck back to stock. Without a tuner, you will need the EGR coolers. Otherwise, you'll throw codes and go into limp mode. You'll also have to put on the stock exhaust with the DPF since there won't be a tuner on your truck when you go for emissions testing.
