im thinking that too. this is my second 6.0. first one i did the whole thing. now im thinking of just capping off the egr cooler and letting the coolant flow. maybe even weld shut the t coming off the up pipe. would there be a need for that once a blocker flange has been put on either end of the cooler, or just one end.

i guess for the money spent, its a no brainer. but why would it crack. the problem with the old coolers is that the coolant was not enough to cool the eg. thus causing it to boil and expand. would the problem be gone if you removed the eg. the only heat would be coming off the block. im pretty sure the welds can hold 16 psi. the plastic overflow cap can, so can the flimsy hose clamps.

If it cracks, wouldn't it be better to have the coolant blocked off? That way the coolant doesn't go inside the engine.
