New to the Powerstroke crowd

I just bought a model year end close-out 2019 F-250 after many years in a pre-emission 2006 5.9 Cummins (insert joke here). Had my eye on the Fordís for a while, just waiting for FoMoCo too get the bugs worked out on their 4th different Diesel engine in the F250-350. Iím sure Iíll have many questions.

So after not having to worry about EGR, Coolers, DEF, DPF and the sort, this stuff is worrisome to me. I keep seeing these videos of guys taking the intake pipes off and literally beating the carbon and soot out of pipes that are supposed to deliver clean air going into the engine.

I know that most folks delete EVERYTHING, with the goal of putting a tuner on and adding power. I am just looking for a cold air intake and some block off plates to prevent soot, carbon from entering the engine. I know there will some small level of increased power with these mods, but the end goal is to make the engine run cleaner and dump everything else out the back. The extra power is a just a bonus.

Any suggestions on EGR Block off plates (leaving the rest of the system intact) and are there any Tuners that will only delete the EGR part of the system? Has anyone ever put in two ďYĒ pipes in the exhaust to bypass the DPF? The only reason to that would be for Emissions testing and re-sale value.

Just wonderiní.

Thanks!
