Aftermarket / Stainless EGR Coolers? Experiences?
My 2008 6.4 has 106k and I am past due for the accessory drive belts and tensioner replacements. I am also considering replacing the water pump while I have the front end apart. I replaced the hoses with the revised dual o-ring Motorcraft units as well as the thermostats about 4 years ago. I will replace the o-rings during this effort of course.
The exhaust system was replaced about a year ago with all new OEM parts, courtesy of a Meth-head attempting to steal the cat and much to the dismay of my insurance company (~$6200).
No tuners or deletes, pretty much a stock truck, maintained with all OEM parts. The truck has been fairly trouble free and I am looking to keep it that way.
I am considering replacing the EGR coolers as a preventative effort while it is apart. Stainless EGR Coolers are about $1200, so a hefty investment, but do these really prevent leaks, clogs, etc. Aftermarket units will run about $500 for the pair, but not stainless. I am sure OEM will run close to the stainless units.
Does anyone have experience with Stainless EGR coolers? Worth the price of admission?
