Improved EGR Cooler with a Full Set of Drop-In Gaskets It's a well-known fact that the factory EGR system on the 6.0L Powerstroke is one of the 2004 to 2007 F250 and F350's biggest weaknesses, blamed for a host of issues including outright engine failure in worst-case scenarios. Thankfully, our friends over at aFe Power are here to help. With this complete EGR cooler kit, you get a full set of gaskets and hardware along with your new cooler to make installation that much easier. aFe's EGR cooler is much more resistant to carbon build-up and clogging than your 6.0L Powerstroke's factory cooler and is also more efficient at cooling off the gasses passing through it, improving reliability and performance and lowering EGTs in the process. The aFe EGR cooler is designed to drop right into place of your stock cooler and doesn't require tuning.
TIG Welded Stainless Steel with Tubular Internal Design The stock EGR cooler had a pretty flimsy design and used an inefficient finned-cooling system that would often lead to overheating and the failure of engine components. aFe learned from the factory system's mistakes and makes their system out of thick stainless steel with a boxed design that is all TIG-welded and pressure tested to ensure leak-free operation. The aFe Bladerunner EGR cooler uses seven large-diameter tubes that more effectively cool exhaust gasses as they pass through as well as eliminate clogging issues. aFe includes all necessary installation hardware and instructions.
