Best EGR Delete For BPD Oil Cooler

Hello all,

Iíve been running a Sinister Diesel EGR kit(previous owner installed it) while I installed a BPD Oil Cooler 6 months ago. While they do work together, itís only a matter of time till the hose will leak. The ports between the transfer block and the wrap around of the delete kit are not aligned too well and the hose coupler makes up for the lack of perfect alignment.

I understand the IPR delete is not compatible with the BPD oil cooler kit but are there any better options? Or is modifying the SD unit is the best route?

Thanks,

You may be able to find an old BPD unit, they originally had "deletes" that were EGR coolers with plates TIG welded on the exhaust openings but the coolant still had the normal path. They've been out of stock for a long time and last time I talked to them they said they didn't offer them anymore. If you're a decent welder or know one, it's not a difficult task. If I remember right, BPD has a $50 core charge that's refunded when you ship in your old unit, so you'd have to sweeten the deal if you found someone changing theirs, I would've let you have mine for $60 which would've gotten me my core charge back plus $10 for not having to take it to the post office.

Plug the holes in the intake manifold and front cover and run the coolant back to a tee in the heater return line. This does require removing the intake manifold, but IMO, it's the best "delete". Otherwise, I'd probably run a BPD cooler or a welded up OEM one.

block off the port in the front cover and put an NPT plug in the BPD cooler block

Im probably the odd man out but I actually went from an egr delete to the bulletproof egr cooler. Only because of this:

Many states emissions/inspection software is being updated to catch egr deletes. Not by design but by just new testing parameters etc. The county I lived in their smog stations failed egr deletes. Had a guy test my truck without recording it etc. I got away with it for a few years before hand though. but just something to consider for future if you feel your state/area may start emissions testing etc.

Interested in learning something new?

I went BPD cooler as well but run a slug in place of the EGR valve, if/when inspection comes around I just put the valve back in

Well, if you wanna do it the easy way, sure. LOL

I wasn't thinking that one through when I recommended tieing back in to the heater return. With the BPD block there is no need, just plug it like you said.

I know you want to get rid of the cooler, but as mentioned it isn't long until emissions testing is everywhere IMPOSSIBLE to cheat nowadays....that is a fact.

I went with the BPD cooler, reinstalled a DIESELSITE up-pipe and installed this:https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-6-0-Di...72.m2749.l2649

It is now easy to re-insert my valve, pass the test and remain legal.

All good info, thanks everyone.

So there is no issue with coolant flow when you block off the ports? No “dead heading” or anything like that?

So from the service manual page(attached) showing the flow of coolant-it seems like the most ideal place to weld/plug the flow of coolant is on the intake manifold after the point of the coolant exiting the egr and not the port on the front cover after it has exited the intake manifold.

Along with blocking the coolant port on the BPD transfer block-that seems like the cleanest way, correct?
