I have a LBZ and doing research on doing the EGR delete on it. What does everyone think about the Sinister Kit?

I just put an SDP on mine. It fit perfect. I've heard of some kits causing the elbow to blow out of the y bridge. With pipes like SDP and HSP, you won't have to worry about that.

Big fat NO on the Sinister kit. Go with a quality kit from SDP or RDL or other supporting vendors here.

I've had one on my truck for several years now with no issues. However, I do wish I had done a complete Y bridge kit, like brock said, from SDP, HSP, WCfab etc

I like my Sinister kit, I've had it 3 1/2 years no issues.
With Sinister you'll retain the stock look, grid heater, way easier install.

The other kits mentioned you'll be changing everything including removing/buying the up-pipe that's blocked off.
On the link you provided that's a additional $239 on top of the price of the kit, this is something that's really never mentioned until you pull the trigger to buy.
You have to either weld the opening closed or buy another up pipe, no matter which way you'll have more labor involved.

If I was building a racer, then I might go that way, but I didn't.

If you decide on Sinister DO NOT BUY the knock off copy cats for less $$$.
Stick with the real thing.
When Sinister first came out they had problems with the stock up-pipe block off plate.
They re-designed this several years ago, before I bought mine.

The complete y bridge goes between the heads, in the valley, more labor to install, but holds up to higher boost pressure that tuned trucks see

Im looking at the HSP Intercooler CHarge Pipe Bundl;e kit. Is this going to give my truck the "weight loss surgery" Im looking for? Thank you

Holy old thread batman. Yes, it looks like that should take care of the underhood weight loss, other than the up pipe
