EGR Delete on 6.0L F250

I am gonna need a lot of help on this because I've never done a egr delete before I just no a little about it. Basically my dad's 6.0 is having its second egr cooler going bad and he is pretty fed up. I told him since the truck is no longer under warranty that we should try an EGR delete.
My main question though, is that if we buy a delete kit, does it remove the egr cooler, also I'm hearing mixed answers online about the check engine light coming on and what does it exactly mean. My dad said he spent about 1000 dollars on the Egr cooler last time it broke so it'd be nice to stay under that if we would do a delete. We do have a mechanic so labor is not a problem.

You need to do the EGR delete that either plugs off both ends of the exhaust side of the cooler or better yet gets rid of the EGR cooler completely. As for the CEL it depends on what strategy your PCM has and the year of the vehicle. This is a very good time to put in a Bullet Proof system and get rid of the OEM oil cooler also.

Question - when the EGR cooler went the first time, did he have the oil cooler replaced? Typically, when the EGR cooler fails, it's because the oil cooler clogged up and blocked coolant flow to the EGR cooler.

You could also get and install the BPD EGR cooler and not worry about CEL codes. It's about $350, and much better built than the stock unit. But even that won't do you a lot of good if the oil cooler is clogged up.

BPD makes a terrific external oil cooler, but it's some serious coin - around $2k. If you replace the oil and EGR cooler, and flush the coolant system and replace with ELC diesel coolant, that should should take care of the situation. The stock Ford coolant can congeal under heavy engine use, which clogs up the oil cooler, which takes out the EGR cooler.
