I have tried the old www adress to access the egr delete stage 2 kits to see the black friday deal ,
and all I get is a error page .
so I went to the sasquatch page , and even clicking on ecodiesel ram 3.0
there is no mopre kits to be found , am I looking in the right places , or has this been discussed before
..

Yeah CFT has the nice plate for coolant at location 2 compared to a " Y " from Sasquatch kit .
but the bracket to bolt the coolant hose at location 3 was the reason I would go with Sasquatch even at the higher price of the Sasquatch kit .
so now the "no-choice" will decide it for me .

I contacted Sasquatch :
..
"" Hello Sasquatch ,,, I looked at all sections of the Ram 1500 3.0L ecodiesel and I cannot find the EGR delete stage 2 kits ,
did you stop selling them ?? even my old links give me the error screen ....
-Mike..

( P.S. I am the guy who dared re-doing your installation instructions on Ram1500 diesel site for those kits ).
---------------------
ANSWER :
Yes we stopped selling them.

Thanks,
- Seth

====================
that's the end of that way of getting that kit .

since it was named "weeks" kit , i looked around for the kit . only thing I found with a bracket that looks like the sasquatch kit was here :

can't tell how the quality is on those ...CFT is already a safe choice , waiting for guinea pigs ...

Bumping this. With the latest EPA attacks on "offroad only" shit I decided now was the time to get the EGR delete kit before I couldn't.
I bought the Ebay kit, which is identical to the kit you can find on zzdiesel.com (never heard of them) and looks complete (copy of Sasquatches?). It was $99, so I guess I'll be the guinea pig. Really, the plates are the only "specialty" part of the kits, everything else can be sourced/changed as needed if required.

I didn't buy from CFT because their info/pics is a bit lacking. More money does not a better product make, so I went the ebay route.

As you said D94R , no more Saquatch kit ,
-alternatives :
-the ebay kits you purchased
-the Noeco kits
***only bad ones reported were : the detroit diesel kit , and one of the ebay kits , I don't remember the thread it was reported in ..:(
the bad ebay one was because the fitting that bolts on the extra bracket would leak , the extra bracket was not flat at contact area , warped , easy
verification before install to make sure it is a flat surface I guess .

*** the one I ordered :
Ram, and Grand Cherokee Eco Diesel EGR Solution kit - CFT Custom Fabrication ( looks expensive for what it is , but it has made its proof in reliability . )

Been reading stuff like this universally, even for the bigger motors.

This is going to tank the desirability of many diesels to informed owners and buyers. Damn.

I received the kit, it looks really nice. Not sure what this was copied from, or if this is how Sasquatch “still sells” their kits, or who ever. It came from Texas.

Very nice D94R , that special extra bracket that distinguised the Sasquatch kit from the others
looks pretty flat where the tube will be bolted to , that was the reported weak link in ebay kit before ,
it is nice not to cut the rubber hose to put brass plug in .

they all had different advantages , I received my CFT kit last friday ,
the CFT kit's advantage is the other coolant location , your kit will make you put that 90 degree rubber hose and plastic tube ,
while the CFT kit has a plate .

Thanks to your picture i am going to try to make myself one of those extra brackets , there is no urgent need for me
to install the stage 2 kit , so I can play around with stainless flatbars in the vise .

images of coolant location 2 with different kits ,first ; "Sasquatch-like" kit ,,,, then Noeco kit ,,,, last is CFT kit.

Kazi, you've been a big help. Trying to read the different install literature from different kits, plus your help, has helped make this make sense before tearing into it.


Not sure what your comment about 1(b)(risky, will crack tube) means?

a kit left the turbo up pipe in place , capping it at the top ,
movement over time cracked the turbo up pipe , much better to put the 3 hole plate on the location 1 .
a member ( blaazer037 ) re-enforced the top location of that different kit , adding a brace,
..
picture he posted below . and a turbo up pipe cracked


.
just double checkeing , you did see the step by step tutorial thread on stage 2 EGR delete kit install ??

Ok good. And yes, I had read that thread about a year ago when I started noticing coolant disappear over time. I've topped off 3 times in a year so I think I'm slowwwwwly leaking. Reading through it, without really knowing what was being referenced was confusing at first. I have no doubt it will be straight forward once I dig in... I've deleted a few other makes of EGR coolers.

I see tollmtn purchased the same kit I did and had no problems, that's promising.
