I have a Spartan and run the 150 tune...which throws a lot of smoke. This tune also produces some funny exhaust, especially when the waste-gate opens at idle.
I was thinking about going back to 75 or 125, for less smoke and putting in blocker plates. I am worried about all that soot plugging up that stupid egr valve...The day it hits 100,001 miles, those coolers are going away!
Any thoughts?:icon_ford:

If you already have a tuner and are thinking about deleting the EGR be it with block off plates, plates and a CFM+, or getting rid of the coolers altogether, your warranty is still the same... Why wait for 100,001 miles when you've already tuned/deleted your truck and your warranty means nothing to Ford?

B/C ford doesnt know any of that....especially when he puts his DPF and stock tune back onto the truck. The EGR delete is a little more time consuming to install/uninstall.

Go ahead and do the delete now. Just keep in mind that returing to stock will take you a whole day.

I run the spartan 275 would I be better to delete the egr or just put in the block plate?

the 150 tune runs the egr like stock so you don't have to worry about the egr valve getting stuck. but if you want a clean tune jump to the normal 210. It's a real clean tune little smoke and it keeps the egr closed unless at idle then it cycles it.:beer:

Do the delete with the elbow. If you allow all that hardware to stay on the engine, you are asking for a leak and possible serious issues. There is no reason not to get rid of it all if you are already playing with DPF and tunes.
