For those who have deleted the egr system on your LLY/LBZ/LMM, check your coolant hoses again...

Last week I got home from the AZ races, parked my truck outside overnight, next morning walked outside and freaked out because I had a 20' trail of coolant to the street. Followed the coolant drips, up the passenger head, and where my EGR reroute coolant line routes from the input of the turbo line(upper radiator hose) to the coolant drain (passenger head by fuel rail) had come loose with my hose clamps. I lost all the coolant in my degas bottle(1 gallon +) but my radiator hose was soft, so a H/G was out of the question.

Recheck and double check your lines.

Well my turbo compressor housing rubbed my egr cooler so I prettty much had to take it off :D
It's a huge argument between egr delete and egr block, but IMO, deleting the egr is better...
Okay..Thanks Brian:drink I will research it alittle more...you got a approximite price on a kit or???

I've blown the EGR cooler hose clean off after a couple doughnuts one night...Good ole GM clamps.

Also I say just block EGR unless you are pulling EGR motor and cooler complete. Might ass well go all the way and not 1/2 of it.
