Bullet Proof Diesel 6.0L EGR Cooler Granted CARB Executive Order

If you have a 6.0-liter Ford Power Stroke Diesel truck, you’re probably well aware of all the common ailments that this engine gets. While many less then educated keyboard commandos will have you believe that this engine is not worth the hassle, the reality is that the 6.0-liter Ford Power Stroke is one of the most advanced engine designs to ever be offered on modern diesel pickup trucks. That being said, one of its major shortcomings is the factory Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) cooler.

13: Here’s the biggest problem the 6.0 has—the EGR cooler.

Coolant passes through the EGR cooler and is used to cool the exhaust gases flowing back into the engine to improve emissions. While a great feature in theory, in practice, it’s been known to fall apart or become clogged, which usually results in exhaust gasses in the coolant system as well as burning of coolant in the exhaust tract which most people assume is a bad cylinder head gasket.

Bullet Proof Diesel has long been known as a leader in 6.0-liter Power Stroke engines. Their products have kept many work trucks running strong even when exposed to harsh environments and heavy payloads. One product that Bullet Proof Diesel has offered for 6.0-liter Power Stroke engines is their EGR Cooler upgrade which gets rid of the weak factory design for a much sturdier stainless steel construction that will eliminate failed EGR coolers indefinitely.

We’ve personally had great success running Bullet Proof Diesel’s EGR Cooler on our 6.0-liter Ford Power and now they’ve taken their EGR Cooler a step further by achieving Smog legal status in California. An Executive Order number was granted by the California Air Resources Board for their square style EGR Cooler (BPD Part Number: NT-EGRC-1) as a fully-compliant, smog-legal upgrade.

The Bullet Proof Diesel NT-EGRC-1 EGR Cooler fits all 6.0L Ford Power Stroke F-Series Diesel trucks manufactured on or after 9/22/03 - 2007 model year and the later model 2004 - 2010 for the E-Series. It has the same fitment as the stock EGR cooler with improved stainless steel construction. The NT-EGRC-1 also holds the same quality and lifetime parts warranty that has always been offered from Bullet Proof Diesel. Pricing for the EGR Cooler is $350.00.
