    All of the anti-delete crew in here runs the cats on all of their race and street bikes, right?

    egr is an inert gas used to fill the cylinder and lower NOx.

    All emission related equipment was warranted 8 years or 80k miles, at least that was when I worked as Jeep tech. I have no doubt it is same or even more these days but I may be wrong. On Jeep vehicles at the time I was working on them (13 y/a) covered equipment was catalytic convertor, ecm, O2 sensors, exhaust manifolds... and basically any part which due to it's malfunction would affect vehicles emissions. I don't see the reason it should be different on diesel engines but you never know.

    yes and that soot is normally dry. Unless your tuner is over fueling or you have a leaking egr cooler.

    You'd be very very wrong in comparing China to the US at pretty much any time since the 1800's...

    Diesel emissions are not about health, they're about money and control.

    Are you seriously going to defend EGR as beneficial or even net neutral to diesel engine health, performance and efficiency?

    egr is a necessary evil to owning a diesel under the current laws.
    FYI, diesel has been using EGR since the mid 90’s at least.

    So... The Turbo Actuator is the problem. The actuator alone is $3400 from the dealer and they said that part is not covered under warranty. Dealer could have cared less that the truck was deleted, but called Chrysler to get part under warranty and was told that it's not covered.
    Seems like some people on the forums have had luck getting it covered and some haven't.

    $3400 is nuts unless it includes the turbo, cal, coolant, labor, and favors

    Yep, as cheap as around $300 but you have to have the tool to calibrate (I do using AlfaOBD) but if you don't the below is tempting for sure. https://www.mddistributorsstore.com/cummins/5494878rx/remanufactured-turbocharger-actuator-kit


    For the average owner this sounds like a good deal, especially considering the dealer pricing.

    Call Superior diesel in Detroit and see if they will sell you a rebuild

    They are the work truck GO-TO guys in town. Owner is neighbors with my folks...really good hard working dude.

    Last turbo I bought from them was I think 600 or so.

    I'm considering all of the above options.
    Also have a call in to FCA to see what they will do since there are many instances of them covering it under warranty.

    The actuator is available seperate, I think. Does have to be calibrated.
