The EGR system takes some exhaust gases and sends it back into the motor. These exhaust gases are very hot and are cooled by your engine cooling system. During this process the coolant is warmed up by attempting to cool the very hot exhaust gases which make the engine work at increased temperature. Also Soot from the EGR cooler can get stuck within the temperature exchanger and results in severe oil temperatures that can lead to injector breakdowns, engine block and cylinder head warping.
If you get the EGR and Cooler eliminated, all the hot exhaust gases go to turbo and the coolant system will now be able to keep the engine cool.
Another benefit of removing the EGR valve is it eliminates any chance of blockages in the system. Keep in mind that removing the EGR valve can set off the engine check light/code. We should run a big rig power ECM tuner to turn off the EGR system to stop the light.
Big Rig Power offers several different EGR Delete Kits both for the Dodge Cummins 6.7L and the Ford Powerstroke 6.0L. Big Rig Power EGR Delete Kits eliminate the EGR Cooler and re-routes the coolant back to the engine which will allow the coolant to do the cooling of engine. Big Rig Power EGR Delete kit deletes both the EGR Valve and the EGR cooler, and comes with a new up pipe that will increase exhaust flow to the turbo and eliminates the diverter inside the factory up pipe which will create faster turbo spool up and performance.
A lot of people have questions like: “If I Install EGR Delete on my vehicle, will it show “Check engine light”? The answer is it should not cause a check engine light on vehicles like FORD 6.0. There may be check engine light on Ford 6.0 2005-07 models, however there are many solutions. Replacing a working EGR valve should fix the problem. In Ford 6.0 (2006-07) models you may need to get a SCT tuner to remove the EGR code. SCT tuner is also a good way to improve your fuel economy by changing the fuel mapping.
