Is EGR delete a good idea?
New to the forum and diesels, in March I bought An 08 F250 FX4,Traded my 2wd GMC, figured it was time to get out of pullups and into big boy pants. I love the truck. I bought an Edge racing tuner and did the DPF delete, It doesn't have the egr delete option,so I contacted edge products about the egr and if some smoke (not a lot but more than I thought there should be) is normal I have it set to race level 1. Normal driving not towing. This is what they replied:
It is very normal to have smoke on acceleration especially if you are heavy on the throttle before the boost picks up. There are no EGR delete settings on the Racing products because EGR deletes are not a good idea on this vehicle. We automatically turn off the EGR for anything emissions related but the EGR also functions as a way to normalize the pressure between the two turbos and without that system you would have issues with the turbos.
Now if any of you diesel gurus out there can explain this to me I would be thankful,I'm confused now.
