EGR Block-Off Plate?

Hey guys! I'm trying to do as much as I can to prevent headgasket failure on the cheap (ironic huh?). But I was thinking about getting an EGR Block Off Plate installed? I have a 03, so should I? Is it worth it? And how much did it cost you guys to get installed?

Re: EGR Block-Off Plate?

I was able to do all my own work except getting the plug welded in the up-pipe. Takes some long extensions and some time but saved me the cash.

Re: EGR Block-Off Plate?

Thats one way to do it but its restrictive. Better off buying the delete kick from what i have heard.

Re: EGR Block-Off Plate?

Please explain how the block off plug is restrictive.

Re: EGR Block-Off Plate?

the plate is worth it if it is impossible do the whole delete kit, but the cooler can still fail and cause you problems. the delete kits seem exspensive but if you price the replacement cost of a oil cooler, egr cooler, egr valve, downtime, and labor they are pretty cheap.

04 CCSB Lariat, 4x4, studded & deleted(Elite), Garrett stage 1(DI), Innovative tunes, DS coolant filter, FS2500, Banks intercooled, 17x9 MT classicII's, Nittos, trans rebuilt by me, B&M shift kit, billet converter...sold

04 F450 RC studded & deleted(FCDP), alum. wheels, pulls the gn.

05 build in progress...

Re: EGR Block-Off Plate?

For on a budget I think the best place to start would be to buy a scoopless up pipe. I believe Elite and First Coast offer both without buying the entire kit. This way you have the smooth seamless pipe without the scoop and eliminate the flow into the cooler.

This is the same as putting in a plate, but will remove any possible restrictions in the pipe and I think better for the long run.

Well put, you can either do this multiple times with the cooler, or just get rid of the cooler from the beginning and dont worry about anymore, just my thoughts.

Re: EGR Block-Off Plate?

So should I get a bypass or delete kit? I'm still under warranty

iirc the 03 pipes dont have the scoop.
