EGR throttle plate question !

i have just installed my new 3 in 1 gauge and when i took off the intake manifold to drill and tap for the boost sensor i noticed that the egr throttle plate was at a wide open position . i dont know much about this but i was thinking that if my tune from eric has the egr off why would this be open . any input is greatly appreciated.

Roger

It doesn't shut the throttle plate, just keeps the EGR valve itself from opening.

If you're talking about the throttle plate that sits under the intake elbow, then yeah. It has to be open, otherwise you wouldn't be able to get air into the engine.
