lets end the egr delete/low boost issue once and for all!
Ok, Ive done the research, Ive heard a few "theories" & have checked for leaks...Im sorry I cannot buy into "the boost is supposed to be lower after EGR delete" as I personally know & have researched several dozen cases where the boost did NOT change after the EGR delete. You just cant argue with that! Now to be perfectly honest I have not pressure or smoke tested for leaks as I dont have the tools or knowledge to do this properly. This is a move I am willing to do and plan to do in the very near future. I can say there are no signs of carbon anywhere around the ehaust side connections & that I personally pulled and inspected every boot after the turbo.
A note to think about: on the factory turbo, in almost all cases the boost reads 27-28 psi of boost. Everyone who is complaining about "low boost after EGR delete" is reporting 20-21 psi of boost. Is it possible we all have the same exact leak? dont you think that at a 6-7 psi loss of boost somewhere you would here the leak? Are we ALL deaf to the leak sound..I doubt it...so what is the problem? What procedure is skipped or missed that causes the same exact loss of boost on dozens of 6.0l's after the teardown of the topend? I cant believe that somone has had this problem, fixed it and not reported the fix somewhere! I also cant believe that almost all with this problem just say "oh well" and ignore it.....Im hoping we can put our heads together and finally put an end to this irritating senario!
