Egr cooler and exhaust questions

Ok so I'm new to the .org and new to diesels.

I just got an '04 F250 with 60k miles on it. I have changed all the fluids and filters on it. Everything about this truck is spotless and seems to have been well taken care off.

None the less I want to change a few things.
For the Egr cooler is my only choice one from Bullet Proof Diesel? Or is there something else us here in Cali can do?

Also what do you all recommend for exhaust since we have to leave the CAT? Is there any advantage to changing out the exhaust?

Thanks for any help and direction guys.

Yep BulletProof EGR cooler and MBRP exhaust. MBRP make a nice 4 inch setup that keeps the stock cat. Replace the oil cooler when you do the egr cooler though.

A CAT delete help drop the exhaust gas temp.

On mine with just a cat delete, it dropped average of 150-175 cooler

You do have to keep the cat for smog testing! If they do inspect the exhaust system for emssions and the cat is gone they will fail it. Some states dont have inspection. More and more states are implimenting emission testing and inspection, so if you dont have it now you might soon

You'll need the cat, if the truck came with it. Some folks leave a delete pipe in until inspection time, then swap the cat back in. CA does inspections and "smoke" tests every two years. If your truck has a VIN that ends odd, it will be in an odd year, if it ends even, an even year.

Mine ends with a '3' - So, this year, I had to have mine done.

How do they do the emissions on diesels? Is it just a visual?

Can't you put it back in? Mine doesnt require any welding. Has a U bolt clamp thingy on one end and 2 studs on the other.
