I just wanted to do a little write up on a sweet new part that offers a very clean solution to removing the egr standpipe. Feel free to pm me with any questions!
First things first, remove the intake.
Next, drain the coolant. I think the easiest way is to disconnect the lower radiator hose.
While the coolant is draining, take the inner fender off so you have easier access to the coolant bottle and coolant lines.
With the inner fender removed, you can access the lower half of the bottle now. Remove the clamp that holds the hose to the bottle.
Now remove the clamp on the other end of this same hose where it connects to the egr stand pipe.
Once all your coolant has drained, go ahead and remove this hose. Set it aside for later.
Remove the clamps for the lower heater core hose and remove this hose.
Now take this hose and flip it around backwards. It fits perfectly when you route it behind and below the coolant bottle.
Route the other end under the bottle right next to the bottle inlet/outlet.
Now go back to the coolant line we set aside for later.
Cut out just the reducer section
Next you will need a tee fitting. I personally like to use this pex fitting. Its handy because it has a reducer built in for going to the heater core and is and pointing the correct direction. The sharkbite brand part number is UC418LFA. I got it from home depot. The tee looks like this.
Put the reducer on this tee and then install with the small leg of the tee pointed towards the hose that goes to the heater core.
Now remove the single bolt that attatches the standpipe to the block. It has an 8mm head.
Remove this clamp and hose from the coolant bottle. Its the hose that was needed to bleed the coolant system when the egr was still on the truck.
Now you can finally pull that hideous stand pipe out!
Dont throw it away just yet though. You'll need the o ring.
Install the o ring on the standpipe delete fitting.
Install a 3/4 npt x 3/4 hose barb 45į fitting into the standpipe delete fitting. Orient it like this.
Lube the o ring with some coolant and install.
Using 3/4 heater hose, route some hose from the tee to the standpipe delete fitting.
Cap off this inlet on the coolant bottle.
Reinstall inner fender and intake. Now stand back and admire!
Cant advertise here so if anyone has questions regarding pricing, pm me.
