Default EGR blocker plate or delete kit?

Is the egr delete kit that much better than just using the cheap blocker plate???

I used the blocker plate until I upgraded to a fixed charger. I think the gains are minimal at best doing the full delete over the blocker plate.

My vote is to delete it,your probably going to do more mods in the future and it will be in the way or you will want better flow on the cold side (were the egr delete is)

Yes it will but if you get efi live your tuner will be able to turn those check engine lites off for you.

I did the blocker plate the first time. I could never get it to seal properly and soot got all over unter the hood.

I like the full delete. Cleans up the engine bay quite a bit.

Big advantage of a blocker plate is if you have to emissions testing.

Why do you want to stay away from a tuner?

Tuners are your friends

6speed is 80-100hp on average depending on the driver and how its driven. I drove 40k on a 120rwhp tune stock trans, no limps ect. Pulled trailers to. Nothin wrong with a tuner tho, just dont crazy. U could always throw on the trans go jr for alittle help. But definitely savin for the build is a smart way.

If you have an FE9, more then likely you'll be ok. All fingerless trucks will throw a code, but an FE9 will not illuminate the CEL when this happens which is why most FE9's can run blocked and fingerless.What is a FE9 - Emissions code, you'll find it on the spec list in the glovebox. There are a few different packages, California emissions and Northeast emissions to name a few. Basically if you have anything other then Federal Emissions (FE9), your probably gonna need a fingerstick
