I would be interested. Been wanting to do a CFT one, but the way his pricing is...... EGR has to blow up first. Price it right and the interest should be there. Looks like you did a inlet tube and using stock pipes. I will be interested in viewing your story on this. Thank you for taking the initiative.

I should have it hopefully installed this week end in my personal truck. I will be utilizing a support bracket for the up pipe. I am not here to sell a kit that will cause other issues. I took it upon myself to see if I can provide an alternative to the other kit on the market.

I’ve got the kit at my house now. Like I said, I want to install it in my personal truck first. (How ever my truck is in shop unexpectedly getting the Webasto Heater Replaced.) Just to prove that all is 100%. I don’t want to sell any kits without proving there are no hiccups. The test truck seemed fine, but I’m not here to rip anyone one off or sell junk. My plan on pricing should be around $800us shipping included. Black Powder Coated Only. Sorry guys, you’ll just have to bear with me a bit more.

Damn 800 is steeper than I thought. I mean the CFT is only 200 more.

All of these ‘kits’ are too pricey. It’s a plug, one pipe and some RTV.

The kit you showed retains the factory hot side intercooler boot and pipe.

I dunno. I’m just angry that none of my other diesels cost more than $300 bucks to remove the EGR completely.

I'm interested.. but was also hoping for less than $800 but I understand that it's a limited market and time and materials ain't cheap..

With that said, I haven't had a lot of time to dig into how the emissions system works on this engine. Can you explain what the kit comes with and how it differs from CFTs? It looks like the new downpipe from CFT is replaced with just a EGR blockoff plate.. which I am cool with if it saves money, reduces installation complexity and such. But is there a downside to short-cutting this? Thanks and keep us posted? My EGR is ok at 60k, but I'm sure it's just a matter of time!

You don’t get a downpipe with CFT kit. That’s a completely separate item unrelated to the EGR. Are you thinking of the hot-side intercooler piping or the up-pipe?

So again I haven't dug into it too much, but I assume out of the turbo is a "Y" pipe that feeds both the main exhaust and the EGR (and various valves). The CFT kit looks like it replaces the "Y" with a single, to the exhaust, SS flex pipe. The kit shown in the youtube video looks like it keeps the "Y" but just blocks the portion off that goes to the EGR. Which again seems ok, but I haven't really looked into how our systems are plumbed.
