There’s arguably no engine more synonymous with diesel than Cummins. Spanning a history of nearly 100 years, it was the company’s original founder, Clessie Cummins, who is largely credited with inventing the diesel engine in the early 1930s. Today, Cummins diesel engines are associated with superlatives like “reliability” and “durability,” and Diesel Spec is pleased to offer EGR delete and tuning services on this brand of engines.

Why EGR Delete?
If you’re interested in improving your fuel economy, reducing engine maintenance, and extending the overall lifespan of your diesel engine, then you should seriously be considering EGR delete. The EGR, or exhaust gas recirculation, is a system installed on vehicles equipped with diesel engines that works to reduce exhaust emissions by recirculating gases back into the engine through the vehicle’s air intake system. While it’s always best to reduce vehicle emissions, the EGR happens to be a very problematic component. This is because most exhaust emissions contain carbon particulates, which can get caught up in the engine and cause problems with the valves, cylinders, and other crucial components that make it tick. This can lead to expensive repairs and engine downtime, which is never ideal. In more dire circumstances, EGR issues can even lead to premature engine failure.
The good news is that it’s possible to remove the EGR on diesel engine vehicles with a special delete kit – and that’s something we specialize in with all types of engine brands and models, including Cummins. Following the deletion of the EGR, owner-operators and fleet owners are privy to experiencing a variety of benefits, such as:
Improved fuel economy: Yes, though an EGR system is designed to reduce emissions, this doesn’t translate to improved fuel economy. Upon EGR deletion, though, it’s not uncommon to experience a noticeable improvement in this area. Being that fuel is one of the leading overhead costs for fleet managers, the savings can be significant.Improved engine power: Improved engine efficiency isn’t the only benefit to deleting the EGR system. There will also be a notable improvement in engine effectiveness, notably when it comes to throttle response. A more efficient engine is a better engine.Minimize repairs, engine failure: Engine repairs and failure can potentially put a vehicle or a fleet out of commission for long periods of time – and extended downtime typically means less revenue generation. Removing the EGR system will enable an engine to run cooler, more effectively, and more efficiently – three variables that translate to a healthier running engine in the long term.
