I simply have the block off plates. I am convinced that there is no need for a full delete. In a full delete, the coolant is still present in the block. In the block off the coolant still flows but it is separated from the exhaust and intake by the block off plates. Even if the cooler cracked and filled with coolant, it would not be able to reach the intake nor exhaust. I have yet to see the need for a full delete. Hope that helps.

Another thing that might convince you is time. Block off plates=45 min, Full delete=6-10 hours.

I'm also deciding which EGR delete method to use " block off plates, full delete with waste gate etc" definitely want to get rid of it somehow. Iv heard that if you don't have a waste gate the drive pressure is way to high and you can have problems with your turbos and other things. If someone could explain this better and is this a concern or not?

I wouldnt worry about a wastegate unless you plan to add fuel.

I suggest doing the full delete to get rid of the coolers that are prone to leaking. The install will take 4-6 hours. Its not difficult, theres just a lot of stuff to remove.

6.4L EGR Delete Kit

The wastegated kit is a good idea if you are running extreme tunes and racing/pulling all the time. The backpressure can get to be a bit much and cause some issues. If you arent running it on kill all the time, a regular delete will work just fine.

I would do the full cooler delete. Those coolers are prone to failure. It only took me 4.5 hours to do my full delete on my truck with one friend helping and a 12 pack. With out the 12 pack it may have only taken a little under 4 hours.

If you just do block off plates and keep your coolers and one leaks can it still ruin your engine? Or can you just remove the coolers then?

Yes and No. With the plates in place, there is no way for the coolant to get into the exhaust or intake manifolds and cause a hydrolock in the event that they do go bad. However, you will lose coolant which if you run it too long can cause you to over heat.

I haven't heard of any failures with plates in place. If your not able to do a full delete due to warranty or emissions issues in your state, the plates is the next best thing.
