If your engine starts running hot or you end up with leaky cylinders or stuck valves, you could encounter problems - and possibly on a lonely, deserted road. Typically, you can blame the problem on the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) cooler, which is meant to reduce carbon emissions. However, if you had an EGR cooler delete kit on hand, you could dismantle the EGR and enable your engine to run cooler, allowing you to get back on the road. t’s discuss just what an EGR cooler delete kit is and the benefits of investing in one.
EGR System History
EGRs have been around for decades, but have evolved with new technology. EGRs used to be a crude system - some using an orifice jet between the exhaust and intake tracts that admitted exhaust to the intake tract whenever the engine was running. That changed in the early 1970s when under certain conditions, you controlled an EGR valve by a manifold vacuum opened or closed to admit exhaust to the intake tract only. When automakers learned more about EGRs and gained experience, control systems became more sophisticated.
Now, to meet emission standards, most modern engines require an EGR, but that too is changing with new technology. Since a faulty EGR can result in poor engine performance, car owners are trying to find a way to remove it, so they get better performance from their diesel engines; this is where an EGR delete kit comes onto the scene.
What is an EGR Delete Kit?
An EGR delete kit is an aftermarket part assembly that removes a vehicle’s EGR system. If you’re a diesel truck owner and want to improve engine longevity and overall performance, you may want to invest in or consider an EGR delete kit. The kit allows your truck’s diesel engine to run cleaner, last longer, and improve performance. It also removes the risk of engine damage due to the EGR system.
The EGR delete kit comes with everything you need to install it, but take note that it’s meant for off-road use only, since removing an EGR cooler kit is illegal in all fifty states and will result in not passing emission’s testing.
Benefits of an EGR Cooler Delete Kit
We’ve touched on what an EGR delete kit is and how it can improve your engine’s performance, but let’s delve more into its benefits. Installing an EGR delete kit reduces costs on repairs and fuel costs, as well as decreases soot deposits that an EGR valve produces. Disabling it prevents harmful contaminants from being reintroduced back into the engine, resulting in problems.
When the engine’s performance increases, so does the fuel economy. Your engine also runs cleaner and more efficiently because the exhaust gases are sent away from the engine. Another benefit is the kit installs easily on most diesel engines and increases performance almost immediately after installation. As mentioned above, the kit lowers the engine temperature, via lowering exhaust gas and levels, since it enables more circulation in the engine, promoting a lower coolant temperature during operation. Last, but not least, these kits are affordable for many vehicles and even cheap for some vehicles.
