there is a thread that was made into a sticky in this part of the 6.7 forum (very top) with pics and instructions on how to do everything....you can either make the plates yourself or go to Home Page and get some for $60 which is what I did.
Yeah I need abit of a crash course as well being a diesel newb with an 08. What exactly is the EGR? Why does everyone want to delete it? I am a few weeks away from deleting my dpf, what does this mean for my EGR? Does this NEED to go as well or what?
EGR- Exhaust Gas Recirculation - the system pumps exhaust through the intake of the engine. This system is put in place to assist in the cleaning of the exhaust along with the DPF. You do not want to remove it with the DPF in place. The 2 big advantages of removing it are Cleaner internals of the engine and lower Exhaust Gas Temperatures.
I will ask this question again: "With the DPF deleted, how often will the EGR actually open/activate?" Seems to me that if its purpose is to assist in the cleaning of the DPF, then with no DPF, the ECM would never actually activate the EGR, right?
I would like for someone with ONLY a DPF delete to de-soot their engine/intake, and after driving a couple hundred miles, re-open the intake to see just how much soot is still building through the EGR. Maybe someone has already done this?
So you too think there is a possibility that the EGR will function as normal, meaning that it wouldn't actually activate since there is no DPF to clean?
Right now I have both systems still on my truck. My truck has nearly 6,000 miles on it now, so I don't think I am in too much trouble. I am intending on getting the BADP Delete very soon though. The reason that I am questioning all this is that I don't have an Edge to clear codes, so I am hoping that with the DPF deleted, there really is no rush to delete the EGR.
The main pupose of the EGR is to reduce the amount of Nox compounds produced by the engine. It is an independent system from the dpf. Egr's have been around along time in gas engines. If you do the delete you will notice quite a few changes including less smoke without the dpf. The turbo produces boost sooner without the Egr clening up the exhaust. Just my 2 cents.
