Thanks man. I try to keep it nice. Got a smashed front bumper right now so it doesn't look quite as good. Where are you located? How much is the dealer charging? If you do it you are going to also need head gaskets and I would block off the EGR cooler.

That's a little high for labor. Most are around $75-$80. I just blocked off the EGR with a plate from Elite Diesel. Not the best way to do it but it helps. You can buy what they call a sneaky pipe but its around $500. There is a write up on here about how to use what is already there and weld in a plate to do it yourself. A lot cheaper. I'll try to find that thread with the EGR delete write up. Are you going to run a SCT with custom tunes?

There is a shop in Plainfield, Il. called No Limit Diesel. Don't know how close that is to you but the number is 630-913-3500. Here they are very good.

Find the link and send it to me. Someone posted something on here about a kit off ebay and everyone that looked at it said it seemed fishy. Don't buy it until you get some feedback from the guys on here. They won't steer you wrong.

I would completely eliminate the EGR and EGR cooler if it were me. I found the sneaky pipe from Elite Diesel for $165. Don't know if it comes with the gaskets but that is the way I'm going.
