The warranty has expired on my truck, and it is due for an intake and EGR cleaning per the maintenance schedule. Considering pros and cons of full deletes - Anybody have experience with it?

Cost wise, it’s a few hundred $$$ to get the intake and EGR cleaned, which will most likely end up just clogging up again. Cost to delete is about $2k in parts if I do it, more if I pay a shop to do it. Being deleted will reduce running costs due to improved fuel economy.

I’m in a state that doesn’t require diesel emissions testing. Goal would be a stock power tune to avoid smoking too much or breaking anything.

Besides the cost, and the risk of getting swarmed by hordes of babes that are attracted to my truck, is there anything else to consider?
