egr delet kits...

Egr Delete Kit Basic for the Ford Powerstroke 6.0
basic kit

EGR Delete Kit | Ford 6.0 EGR Delete Kit | Powerstroke EGR Delete kit | Ford EGR Delete Kit


OK i understand the basic kit remove the egr cooler and the economy kit there removes the egr valve cooler and replaces up pipe.

My question is... What do you achieve by removing the valve it self,if the valve has no exhaust gas going to it?

Is this only to remove the valve from fluttering. if it is still on the truck or to just not allow air to go into its passage way at all... this is what is holding me back from ordering one.

I know the up pipe will put a straight shot to the turbo to spool up fast and etc etc. but i am more curious about the difference as my trucks egr system has an exhaust leak and my cooler is warped so just going to remove it. In the mean time it makes the truck idle rough and shidder like there is no tomorrow. let me kno any input would be great thanks.

Re: egr delet kits...

IDK if the EGR valve will fit with the "block off plate" from the kit installed?? (a couple of days ago I could have figured it out but the trucks back together now) If the valve will fit I don't see that it can do anything, because to inlet is blocked. The valve would just be there for looks and if its plugged in it will stop P0402 and P0403 but you will still get P0401-low flow. Now I'm not sure how the PCM sees the flow??? but I know it will set that code.
The basic kit you are looking at has a plug for the port on the up pipe and is easier to install, the deluxe kit gives you a new up pipe, that can be tuff to change. both kits will get the job done.

There are two reasons why you see things like this. The first and main reason is because you ask a question that is a very common one that can be found with a simple search. Let's face it you have a 9 year old truck (if its an 03) so I bet your question has been asked at least once before if not a hundred times. There arent too many things that havent ever been discussed on here that you cant find without searching. The second reason is just that, you have asked a question that hasnt been asked before and no one or only a coupe of folks know the right answer to your question. Either way some just like to see what was asked and will read when someone knowledgable posts. Bottom line do a search or two and see if you can find your answer. Does getting a response like "I dont know do a search" help your cause any?

The main reason for leaving the egr valve in place is for the appearance of a stock truck. On some trucks it wont cause a check engine light if it is plugged in and others the check engine will still come on even if the valve is plugged in. If you are debating between an egr delete that removes the cooler and one that blocks it, I woud recommend just removing the cooler unless you want to upgrade the egr cooler and have to leave it there for emissions.

It pisses me off to no end to see someone say "Do a search." Have you tried the search eng on this website or a couple of the other Powerstroke forums? They absolutely suck.

You would have a better chance at searching yahoo and google. I have left several forums all because there are people who feel it is beneath them to help someone help. The least they could do is help out with a link or something.

So I applaud you sir for answering his question.

Re: egr delet kits...

Yes the search engines on these things do suck. Nevertheless, it just pains me to see the same question pop up here maybe a few days to a week apart over and over again. I realize that folks are looking for help and at the end of the day if they dont get the responses they are looking for they can usually find what they were looking for with a google search. That was/is how I find stuff so I guess it would be nice if they mentioned that they tried that in their post and then wrote a question specific to what they were wanting to know. Just my $.02

I agree completely. I try and search for stuff but eventually get frustrated and give up for a while. Between the 3 or 4 forums I frequent I can usually find the answer I am looking for.

I just hate seeing folks answer with just a do a search answer.

It's all good though. Sounds like we are feeling the same pains and remedy our pains very similar.

Re: egr delet kits...

Yes it does and just telling someone to do a search without providing anything is pretty much useless.

My only gripe to the OP was when he posts a comment like his second one, the only thing he/she accomplishes (even while it IS very frustrating to see only views and not responses) is making themselves sound like whinny little bitches and I know that that is how I would be perceived if I did the same in my questions. So I just take it and if I dont get any responses, I presume that no one really knows and I just search else where or make the best educated guess I can make. Hope this makes sense. I just get frustrated with whiners and whinning doesnt do anyone any good. Ok sorry, I will let it go now. Thanks for the discussion.

I know exactly what you mean. No worries here whatsoever and enjoyed the discussion as well, even if it was at his expense.

Take care my friend and maybe we can discuss on some other subjects later. I'll see if I can "search" for some good ones.
