Hey simonl - can you tell me the name of the shop in Carlisle, PA? I live in northern VA and am considering getting the EGR delete kit and having it installed professionally.

Does anyone recommend a 6.0L diesel shop in the DC area. Carlisle is only a couple hours away but someone closer would be preferred if they are of the same expertise.

I agree that exhaust gas belongs in the exhaust system, and not the intake. Also, get a coolant filter! This is a must for these trucks.
So I was looking at the coolant filters, and those can-type filters that some of them use look an awful lot like can-type oil filters. Maybe (probably) a stupid question, but could you use a cheap can-type oil filter in your coolant filter kit?

Hi Dougmount,
The shop that did my work was Liberator Performance EGR Cooler Delete . I felt that they were very knowledgeable, and didn't mind taking the time to answer ALL of my questions....I am the type of fellow that has alot of questions! On his reccomendation, I had them change the oil cooler at the same time, just becauseit was right there and accessable while they had it all apart.

Why would you want to? Coolant filters are about $8 each. Wix 24070 & Napa 4070 Coolant Filter: FleetFilter Secure Online Store

Furthermore, coolant filter heads don't have the same filter threads as oil filter heads (11/16"-16 vs. 3/4"-16 typically).

Lastly, the internal filtering elements may or may not be the same for those designed for oil vs coolant.

So, wanna run by us why you're willing to risk a +$5K engine to save *maybe* $2 or so?

I bought my EGR delete kit from River City Diesel, installed the coolant filter kit from Dieselsite and got rid of the Motorcraft Gold in favor of Fleetrite ELC. I also had the shop that did the install gut and reinstall the cat so I pass visual, if Texas ever decides to implement emissions in my area. I had this done about a year ago and have had ZERO issues with the truck since. My mileage improved slightly, but nothing to do backflips over. The spoolup on my turbo has increased, although again nothing to get excited about. I can't attest to lower EGTs, because I still haven't put gauges in the truck yet; that will come with my tax return money next year. Overall, I am very happy with the mods I made to the truck.

I am looking for the same setup. I want to add a coolant filter and get rid of the EGR (or at least block it off). Can anyone tell me if there is a place close to Oklahoma that does this work, specifically OKC? Also, what is the advantage/disadvantage to removing the EGR or putting in a blocker plate (and where can i get a blocker plate if no diff)? Is the coolant filter still necessary to install if the EGR is gone or blocked? Also what kind of dollar figure are you all talking about to remove an EGR and install a "bulletproof EGR" or complete delete? Finally I am a pretty mechanically inclined person, but how hard is the EGR delete process for the average person with average tools and little time??? Thanks to all.

The kit I got from River City Diesel included the block-off plate for the EGR hole in the intake manifold, as well as a new stainless up-pipe to replace the stock up-pipe, rather put a block-off plate on it. Their rationale to me was that they've seen block-off plates on the stock up-pipes warp from heat...made sense to me. Installing the coolant filter is just good common sense, given the track record of the oil coolers getting clogged up.

Including the price of the kit and seven hours of labor to install it, I paid about $1100 total. I installed the coolant filter kit from Dieselsite myself; it took me about an hour, and I took my time to make sure I didn't screw up.

I got a kit from elite diesel engineering that deleted the cooler and blocked off the valve, I welded the up pipe. I have been running that for about five thousand miles, no complaints. It isn't all that difficult to install but it takes some time and patience. Here are instructions from gillette diesel who also makes good kits.
