1. How does The Ugly Fix work?
Our product goes through the ECM to shut off the EGR by closing it.

2. Does your EGR have to be working properly?
Yes, the EGR valve does need to work properly. Our product closes the valve, so if it's stuck, sticking, or real dirty where it can not close our product will not work properly.

3. Can this product be picked up rather than shipped?
Yes, we are based near Charlotte, NC and can meet a customer to pick up. Also check out our shops we work with to get one from them.

4. Does this product boost my turbo?
No, our product doesn't change anything on the turbo. Yes you get more power with our product. Where the more power comes from is when your EGR valve is opening your turbo is boosting, so you do not get that full power from the turbo because of the EGR getting in the way. So when the EGR is shut off with our product you get the power back that was already there, you just weren't seeing it fully.

5. Will The Ugly Fix harm my ECM?
No, our product will not harm anything on the truck.

6. Will The Ugly Fix work for my engine?
Our Detroit product works with 2003-2007 trucks and 2002-2006 engines (series 60, 12.7L & 14L)

7. What is the warranty?
We offer 90 days from the order date for a refund and lifetime replacement.

Some of the things you will notice is better fuel mileage (0.4-1+ mpg increase), more power, cooler engine, less vibration, smoother shifting, more responsive power, cleaner oil, and so much more!
