maybe a hour and that's with running the wire to the gauge and etc
Because there is still a chance of it leaking coolant to the engine from the cooler is there not??

When you use the block off plates, the only thing changing is that the exhaust does not flow into/through the egr. Coolant will still circulate as it normally does, just eliminated the exhaust which would just get stopped up at the EGR valve. When deleted the valve is disabled and remains closed, if you don't do the block offs or full delete, after a while that valve will get caked in soot and refer it useless if you ever try to go back to stock.

5-6 hrs for an EGR delete is outrageous. Like we,be stated above, 3 maybe 4 hrs max... And that's from people who are not actual mechanics. I'd expect a reputable shop to be able to do a full delete much faster, cleaner, and more efficient than the average joe, drinking beer in his garage (me) playing with his truck in the spare time. Just my $.02

In the shop now getting it done I bought all the parts needed for the job to lower the shop cost was qouted $1000 CAD if everything went smoothly I sprayed the bolts down the day before let it sit overnight hoping that come out nicely for them they didn't look too bad but I have 132xxx kms on it. So buying the parts myself I saved from the original qoute $400 approx living up north sucks sometimes but the scenery is nice

Yes as did I all winter but I hear the valves can fail and be forced open from the exhaust pressure. I know you can buy block off plates which is cheaper than the full egr delete to prevent that from happening but I also read somewhere of it failing and getting coolant into the engine? I didn't want to risk it so jus decided to pull it out completely. Towing season is here so wanted it done before hand

Can you clean the valve with water and de-greaser like you can the EGR inner core?
