06 ISX Egr Delete
I have an 06 ISX 450, I want to delete the EGR because I'm tired of spending $1400 to replace the valve or over $2200 everytime the cooler goes. I have talked to PDI and they said for $9200 they do a full delete (remove egr and cooler, replace turbo, intake manifold & exhaust manifold, and reprogram the ECM to a pre-egr state). $9200 seems quite steep for that. My average mpg is 6.8 and with the egr unplugged I get about 7.5 w/CEL. Wondering if I should just reprogram ECM and block the EGR tube where it goes into the intake with steel?
Also, if I had a roadside inspection, what are the chances of me getting caught and or consequences?
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
