Default Best EGR ****** for 2006 6.0

I've looked with the search and found some old stuff but I'm still clueless. I've been looking at all the EGR ******s and want to find out what's worked the best for everyone. I'm new to Diesels so I'm still learning so bare with me.

I like the welded egr which leaves the egr in place but not functional, but I have to pass a visual inspection here.

I've seen people do tha. I don't have to worry about visual or any kind if inspection. I've looked at the Sinister, Rudys and IPR ******s.

Exactly and it makes resale so much easier. AND if you travel through a region that does road side emissions inspections that is one less hassle to deal w/.

I prefer to be on the DL

Would you just weld the stocker or go the route of "upgraded" to not worry about cracking from the heat cycles it's seen thus far.

On edit: I'm thinking this is a dumb comment... you reroute the coolant as well correct?

Negative, with a welded cooler you are just blocking the flow of exhaust through the cooler. Water flow is unchanged. That's actually a point in favor of welding the cooler since you maintain OEM fitment. Sone people have trouble with leaks on aftermarket kits that sometimes don't fit as well as stock parts. Also, it looks like you have a 2006 so you have a scoop in the up-pipe that hinders exhaust flow. You will want to cut that out or get a pipe with it already removed to remove a giant flow restriction along with helping spool the turbo.

So if I weld freeze plugs in both ends of the EGR, remove the scoop in the up pipe do I need to put a block off plate in the up pipe too
