Default Welding v.s. Buying a EGR Delete Kit??

Ok, so im doing my headstuds 4th of July weekend (Cab on BTW and will be posting a pics and a write up) While im eyeball deep in engine i thought i would do the EGR delete. Ive read and read all these guys arguing and bashing each other but i want to know what works.... whats the best route to take. Diesel Dog can get me the sinister delete kit for $300 but if i can weld it up myself without issues id rather use that $300 on the SCT i want go get DIRECTLY after the headstuds! I know what the system does but what do i weld to block it off ?? I was told there are a few gaskets i need to replace on it also.

If anyone can help me out i would be thrilled.

You will need to take the cooler off the truck and weld freeze plugs in both ends of it. For the side that touches the up-pipe, you will need to push the plug in a 1/4" or so and FILL that whole area with weld, to prevent the heat from the up-pipe from destroying it. You can take this further and use some stainless steel plating insted of doing the weld fill. You can also cut the scoop out of the stock up-pipe if you wish, but even with it there no flow goes to the cooler/valve anymore. I would take the intake manifold out and have it hot-tanked to clean the gunk that's already there out while doing this job. The valve you can just leave there, or weld it shut, or whatever.

I did an RCD cooler/valve delete, with a solid up-pipe. It was $185 shipped on ebay. I see similar knock-off kits for even less now, just up to what you want to do, they serve the same function. The sinister is the same as the RCD.

So with the RCD you just bolt and go?? and my father in law is a truck driver. He is getting me a gallon of this acid they use to clean the grime off their truck. Ive seen this stuff in action and it is pretty awesome. Going to plug all holes and fill her up let it sit and repeat till its spotless.

I'd weld up the manifold and just tap a 90* coolant fitting in the bottom to feed the oil cooler. Weld up the EGR valve as well.

Then all you need is the up pipe. either buy one, or take yours off, cut the T off it and remove the scoop from inside.

Keep looking, every time they put 10 of those on, they'll throw one up there for $225, with a "make an offer" option, that's how I got it, and I know others have.

If removing the cooler completely, I would replace the up-pipe, they will crack very easily without the cooler there to help support it.
