I was thinking about dropping it to rinse with distilled water and put it back to keep looking stock. Which is why I think I'd just do the DPF delete race pipe and leave everything else looking stock.

Yea, thats a good point. If you ever plan to go back to stock its probably a good idea to thoroughly rinse that tank out so it doesent turn into a geode inside and plug things up.

Some really good info here. My local Mech-an-ic says NOT to remove the EGR cooler as it will help the engine heating process in extreme cold we get here in the winters. Is there any truth to this? Haven't heard of this before anywhere. Or is he just too lazy to remove it?

The tune would prevent the EGR from operating, short of it being physical mass on the engine that could heat soak i see no way it would make a difference. As stated above, he is likely talking about the grid heater, which you would delete if you did a Y bridge install, but would NOT be deleted with a blocker plate and up pipe install. It sits just behind the throttle plate on the top of the engine. You can see it if you remove the black plastic intake tube (the one with the twist lock)
