Egr Delete and Intake Elbow

OK, question is, why the elbow and is it worth it? I can get the block off kit for more than 100.00 cheaper, so what justifies the elbow?

Re: Egr Delete and Intake Elbow

Just a little better flow compared to the stock elbow. Also cleans up the engine bay a little. I didn't notice any difference because I originally had the kit without the elbow and later purchased the elbow separately. If I was to do it again I would have just got the one with the elbow.

Re: Egr Delete and Intake Elbow

do the full delete with elbow.... the egr/throttle plate housing is a gunked up mess the elbow looks clean and flows better!

So your saying you would spend an extra 140 and not have a performance gain? I understand people want it to look good, but I really dont see the benefit other than looks, which I really dont care about. Im thinking it can be removed and cleaned. After that, it wont gum up again since what is causing it is removed..

Re: Egr Delete and Intake Elbow

You would spend hours disassembling and cleaning an egr valve. Going with the elbow is the right call to make.

What kit and where'd you order it from? I need to get this on my truck. Also are you updating the tunes since your deleting the egr? I have an SCT with IDP and already have the EGR set as off, but was told tunes still needed upgraded.

Re: Egr Delete and Intake Elbow

You may run into cruise control not working with the elbow,I did but kem mike too care if that in minutes no big deal, maybe someone else can chime in on how it works with other tuners, good choice on purchase!

There probably is a performance gain, it is more than likely a fairly small gain but just to be able to clean up the engine bay a little is worth it. As for the cleaning like one2nine said, cleaning up the stock elbow would probably take alot of work not to mention the possibility of breaking the valve when you take it apart.
