Newbie here on these forums but have been driving cummins since 2009. Anyways, my current truck is a 2012 3500 longhorn with 174k flawless miles except for the exhaust system as of a Yesterday when I removed it.

I bought a h&s xrt and flo pro turbo back delete pipe kit, Sinister egr delete kit. I'm not really tuning the truck to go faster or race with. It will tow a 10k trailer about once a month or so. I have the tuner set at stock on the xrt tuner.

Question is, am I safe to run with what I have going on with my rig without an EGT gauge and boost gauge?

Thanks ahead of time.

If you run on stock settings I don't see any problems as the factory ECM limits boost at I think 36psi max and the factory doesn't provide you with an EGT gauge anyway it's just nice for troubleshooting and turbo cool down after high egts. So long as you abide by the factory turbo cool down specs I don't see you having a problem but do the CCV (crank case vent) delete to get that junk out of the intake to the turbo.
