punctuation will go far in life. lol yes, it's safe. the benefit is completely eliminating the possibly of an egr cooler failure and if it does that it is working. Install isn't easy.

...so do capital letters at the beginning of sentences! :hehe:

EGR (cooler?) delete will provide a lot more longevity for your engine and eliminate EGR and EGR cooler failures, which are most common on the 6.0L's. For what its worth, you can either do the delete or the bypass; the bypass is simpler. On the 03's you only need to remove your exhaust up-pipe and install a block off plate into the EGR cooler intake neck and reinstall. It's not the easiest thing to do, but much simpler than removing your EGR cooler and rerouting your exhaust and coolant line.

The links tell us how to do the bypass or delete. Doing the mod decreases the chance of EGR problems - but what do our trucks benefit by what matters most right now - mileage.

Does the EGR delete/bypass effect mileage any? If it makes our trucks last longer then I would be inclined to beleive that would indicate they are working less to some degree and if that is the case - wouldnt mileage increase be a by-product?

why cant you just block off the inlet to the egr with an plate with gaskets and keep everything in place?

That's exactly what I did. Well...what Marc did. Completely removing the cooler is just added insurance.

For what it's worth you're supposed to get a tuner capable of "turning off" EGR, otherwise the engine still thinks that the system is functioning. SCT is capable of doing it
