It prevents an egr cooler failure and puking. It can help your truck not hydrolock. Most people block off the exhaust side via sneaky pipe or block off plate/freeze plug and some weld both sides of the cooler shut.

the egr bypass comes from elitedieseleng.com the following info is directly from the website. EGR stuff is located under the engine parts category. hope this helps 60UPEGRBO
Up-pipe with Blocked off EGR (Sneaky Pipe)
$165.00


Want to block off the EGR on a 2005 and newer truck that has the restrictive scoop shown below? Here is a replacement up-pipe that does not have the restrictive scoop, so you can use the included block-off plate. This maintains the factory appearance of your original pipe. Pipe comes with genuine Ford hardware: 4 new fasteners, nuts, and gasket as well as our block off plate. On certain trucks this modification may set a check engine light, our custom tuner can eliminate this condition

How does eliminating the EGR affect passing Emissions testing? I don't want to screw myself if I have to move in the next few years to another state that has emissions.


I'm debating doing one of the pipes. I guess the best deal would be to run the pipe that eliminates the scoop and side pipe. Again.. MPG's will be the motive. I could run the pipe with the outlet and then run the cap, and use and SCT shut off option. this way it would look factory and nobody would suspect.
