WHY DELETE EGR???

Am going to be purchasing a bullet proofed 2006 F250 6.0 in the near future and owner says that the EGR is deleted. Pro's and Con's to this. First time diesel owner.

Oh ok. Wondering why it's so popular. I dont think people are just wanting to break emission laws. Is it mentality or something?? Does it produce more black smoke out of the exhaust when bypassed/deleted??

Yup no cons besides possibly failing emissions... other than that everything is a plus including the engine lasting longer, engine running more efficiently or better mileage, more exhaust heat and energy to drive the turbo (some engines lose up to 70% of turbo drive energy with the use of an EGR system), more HP with more fresh air getting to the motor.

basically when you put an EGR system or any emissions system on a diesel engine .... The engine is going to hate its life.

On a side note I think Duramax is one the best at making these emission systems work without a lot of failures like some of the other companies constantly have. (:

heres the low down on the egrs for the 03-07 6.0s...


its a liquid based heat exchanging cooler.

you have a large tube filled with basically a bunch of small tubes. one set of tubes has hot exhaust gases running through it that are cooled by engine coolant running through the second set of tubes. sounds simple right??

the issue lies with the design of it... it has very small tubes that got clogged easily and could rupture allowing coolant and exhaust gases to mix this was very bad for any engine and particularly the 6.0. Most of the time the oil cooler would clog because Ford gold coolant would actually leave jelly type material floating around and it would clog the tubes with coolant running through it so your egr cooler would get so hot it ruptured.

a few designs came out with bigger tubes that in my eyes are the best way... you don't worry about breaking laws and getting your truck impounded. however...

Make sure you do your homework OP. There are a bunch of unscrupulous people out there trying to cash in on people's ignorance.

I don't agree with the EGR cooler clogging analogy myself
my take is the reason the EGR cooler on the 6.0 fails is because the oil cooler would start to clog on the coolant side and limit the coolant flow to the EGR cooler


what liquid did make it the the EGR cooler would flash boil and create pressures and stress that would cause the EGR cooler rupture
