Could someone tell me the pros and cons of installing EGR blocks? I have read some about the waste-gate function of the EGR and I am trying to understand the effect of blocking it with and without tuning. The blocking could be detrimental? When it is convenient and when it is not? Is it recomended when you are looking for motor reliability and durability?

Eric at IDP talked me out of a delete kit as did Aaron at rudys. They summed it up, if I wasn't spending my time racing, sled pulling or pulling a lot of very heavy loads it would not be worth the expenience until the warranty is out. IF you have to take the vehicle back for some thing, the egr delete it NOT gonna help you get any warranty work done since it is not really reversable.
I'll do it in 2 more years when my warranty goes out.
Eric also sent me an email also stating that he does not have a delete on his at this time and highly recommended against block off plates.
i wouldnt worry about the waste gate aspect of the egr... hell everyone took them off of 7.3s and 6.0s.. but my truck plugged the egr after 4000 miles with dpf delete and xtreme sct tune so i am going to put on the block off plates on.
2008 ccsb lifted lariat dpf delete pipe to magnaflow dual exhaust, sct livewire, Tyrant Diesel custom tunes on the way!
