A load off my mind...

Ever since (actually even before) I bought my "new to me" 6.0 Powerstroke I've been scared of all the problems with the EGR cooler and EGR valve and the inherent issues of blown head gaskets due to said parts. But now I can breathe a lot easier because I no longer have those parts in my truck. I installed the delete kit myself and although it was a bit of a pain working on the Super Duty, it wasn't all that bad. I even impressed myself. When I was done, there were no left over parts, no leaks (thank God), and best of all, no "Check Engine Light". So now I'll see if it will make any difference on power or fuel economy. I need insurance now...another scary thing! If anyone else tackles this job and gets "stuck" because of crappy instructions, let me know and I can give some pointers.

It's a kit from River City Diesel. Got it on Ebay for $250. Very nice kit.
