Default Bloatware removal question

I have a mj7 build and i am running the Echoe international rom. It is a great rom other than it is full of bloatware. I don't have room for my apps.
Anyone know how these could be deleted? Since this is based on another device other than the mj7, normal mj7 flashable zips do not work.

I tried that but it gives me the message that not everything could be deleted. Do i need to change permissions first?

Try using Titanium Backup to remove things.. That way you can also back them up to your external SD card first in case you accidentally delete something you needed. Backup....uninstall.. do a couple reboots and see how your phone is then running... then you can get rid of the backups if u wanted to save space. Just an idea.
