Lightbulb EGR Delete Advice, and Warning

Ok, so I've learned a few things in the past week or so concerning the EGR Valve delete on these 6.0's. My brother and I both drive SRW F-350's-mine is a 2004, and his is a 2005. Both have blown stock headgaskets, and now have ARP studs. He runs an SCT custom tuned by Innovative, and I run an Edge Platinum (yes, he can smoke me).

Well, after his EGR Cooler went bad, we decided to block the Exhaust gasses from entering his new EGR Cooler. The tech that was doing the work did it on the side, and agreed to block it off using a freeze plug.

I also wanted to block off the exhaust gasses from entering my EGR cooler, but I ended up cutting my pipe, and welding it up. I then took the other half of the pipe, and welded it, using the stock clamp to seal up the EGR cooler.

Today, my brother had to replace his turbo, because the freeze plug melted and trashed the turbo. Fortunately, it wasn't too big of a deal, because he found another stock turbo for next to nothing.

I just wanted to pass this information along for those wanting to block off their EGR Cooler. I think it's a great thing to do-- just be careful what you use to do it.

This is the second time I have heard someone scraping there turbo because of a freeze plug. I would think that there is a batter way of doing this that won't compromise the other componants.

That's certainly alot better option than a freeze plug - that's for sure. I just welded mine because I have a welder, and it was free for me.

did you just wire weld it or did you tig it? they are too different materials and should have been braised(tig welded)

I MIG welded it. Brazing is different than TIG welding. I'm confused about what you mean when you say they are 2 different materials. I used a grade 8 washer to fill the hole in the Up pipe, and ground the welds down smooth. Thanks!!
