Re: whats the best way to block the egr cooler off?

If I was you I'd either talk to Dennis or call up Tadd from Elite. It seems that Elite is the company that has the most products for the 6.0L in my opinion, not sure why. Guess maybe other vendors will start catering to the 6.0 crowd eventually...maybe...possibly I definitely wouldn't drop $840 + 2 core fees for what you posted the link to Just my opinion

Current- 2006 Harley Davidson Edition F250 6.0L w/a "BUILT" engine, Unfortunately mis-assembled and installed by CenTex Diesel and a NAPD Heavy Hauler RACE SERIES Transmission
Previous- 2001 Platinum Edition F250 7.3L
SCT LW and FICM tuning- Eric @ Innovative Diesel
Regulated Return fuel kits- Dennis@ Sinister Diesel

ENOUGH SAID

I'm sure Adam would sell you just his up-pipe for a price that is competitive with elite's. If you are not looking to do an entire cooler delete then the up-pipe should be enough to take care of your needs.

what is the differance between the up pipe mod and deleting the whole cooler. because i plan on doing this to mine when i do the head studs which is going to be soon. and i want to do as cheap as i can

well the op has an 06 and he has a scoop in the up-pipe that he needs to get rid of to make the mod worth while. Whereas our up-pipes don't have scoops, we have dumby throttle bodies, so we can simply block flow to the cooler and that will drastically reduce chances of a cooler failure. of course, the best thing to do is remove it or pull it and block both sides off then reinstall. So, if you wanna go the cheapest way, I'd just block the exhaust side of the cooler off.

do you read before you post? where the heck did you get 840+ 2 core fees?

630 is the shipped price for FULL egr delete..includes intake manifold and solid up pipe.

I will sell just the up pipe..all the prices are listed on the website..

if you have anymore questions please feel free to PM me.

New here, so if I JUST block the exhaust going into the cooler, I don't have to do anything else and this will help dramatically without lights coming on???

It will help dramatically, IMO. CEL might come on.

Do this to your egr cooler. It will help if your cooler breaks also. It is free and does the same thing as any deleter kit.
