FTE Member Offers up Super Duty EGR System for Free!
Need an EGR cooler replacement? Want to retrofit your deleted Super Duty? Here’s a fantastic way to do it.
There was a time, before stricter emissions laws were enacted, that diesel guys didn’t have to worry about pesky added smog equipment. But then things began to change. With the introduction of the 6.0-liter Power Stroke in Ford’s Super Duty lineup, along came the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system. The system does exactly what it sounds like, reintroducing exhaust gases into the intake air to reduce emissions.
But as diesel guys already know, there are some problems with this. Namely, EGR coolers inevitably fail, which can cause potentially serious engine damage. Thus, lots of guys have performed an EGR delete on their Super Duty diesel pickups, which nullifies these problems. But there’s just one issue with this, of course. Removing any emissions device is technically a violation of Federal law, and could potentially get you into trouble. You might be able to get away with it in certain parts of the country, others not so much.
There are several ways around this, of course, including updated EGR coolers that are sold in the aftermarket. But if you’re looking for just a stock replacement or need to retroactively convert a deleted Super Duty, we’ve got a great solution for you. Ford Truck Enthusiasts member displacement4me is actually giving away his EGR setup in the FTE Marketplace right now. That’s right – for free! All you have to do is pay shipping, which seems like more than a fair deal.
The EGR setup came off a 2013 Super Duty with the 6.7 Power Stroke. And in this case, it has barely any miles on it – roughly 430 before it was deleted. So you can bet that it’ll be good for quite a while. And heck, you certainly can’t beat the price!
