Default Egr blocked by soot

I removed the EGR since I develop a leak on the Y pipe and found the EGR blocked by soot. Any recommendation on EGR and DPF delete?



Not looking for extra HP or torque just a cheap delete kit.

Do NOT do a cheap delete. Blocker plate or plate kit on cold side pipe and lb7 up pipe. Or at least cut off riser and weld it shut. The plates they sell to cover risers cause major head aches

Why not just clean it out and reinstall it? Does your state do emissions testing? If so you'll want it in there

No, VA does not require emission for diesel engines but is a good idea no harm on cleaning and reinstalling it.



Thank you!
