Unhappy Nervous Confused need advice...

Alright guys i am having a lot of nervousness and confusion here... i bought a vary nice 6.4 and its beutiful... now its got 100k and has a strait pipe mbpr exhaust so dpf delete etc... now the egr is "turned off" seeing it has some custom insane tunes with a SCT livewire tuner. but i want to delete the eGR it. I hear something of a wastegated egr delete? can someone just tell me the good kit to buy as to be the most protecting to my engine... it idles at about 950rpm so im guessing a sensor in the exhaust needs to be installed? Someone help me hear as the internet has scared the tar out of me with ntstories of egr causing broken rods and overboost shutting the truck down and bent pushrods broken rockers water cavitation in the water pump water in engine so many horror stories im scared to drive it!! ANY HELP in bulletproofing this FOR GOOD would make me feel tons better!!! Thnaks Mike.

Read the 'general 6.4 modifications' thread.

And with stock turbos and fueling you don't need a wastegate. Just do a regular EGR delete (FloPro or PTP).

That writeup helped a lot and thanks! I think im gonna do the EGR delete from flo pro and the coolant filrer from sinister the fass pump as i HATE airdog (past expierience) turbo socks look awesome CVC mod and eventually a suncoast TC trans rebuild and billet shafts. Maybe an innercooler too. Is there anything i can do to prevent the cavitation to the water pump and the horror stories about lifters and pushrods? Or are those rare problems? im new to the 6.4 ive been a 7.3 guy for years. Thanks

Cavitation is not a big issue. There is an updated front cover. Do oil analyses every oil change thru black stone. I thought my cover was cavitating when I did my first one because I had high aluminum. Had the dealer year apart everything to check the cover and it was in perfect condition.

I've never heard of lifter and pushrod issues on trucks making modest power (ie stock turbos and stock injectors). I could see it being a possibility on super high HP motors, but these things are beastly motors and it takes a lot of stress to detonate the internals.

Well thanks for making me worry Aggie. My oil report was awesome except aluminum was high.

That was running the oil half deleted half stock too. I guess I'll check again next oil report in 7500 miles.


It may be your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others.
