EGR Delete

While putting on my egr delete kit from xdp, I also wanted to add a new intake elbow. I got the elbow but the bolt pattern doesn't match. My 2004 has a throttle body, that when I take that off the bolt pattern matches. Can I take the throttle body completely off and put the new elbow in, without any issues or my check engine light comming on if I leave the throttle body unplugged and the egr valve unplugged?

Hate to say it but the new intake elbow will have 0 affect on horsepower gain, not sure about the throttle body but the egr will probably set a code by itself.
Sorry if I sound negative but if you can I would sent the elbow back and put the money somewhere else that will do something positive.

What would you recommend? I kinda just wanted a elbow for style and maybe better spool up and I am thinking about putting a methanol injection system on and thought that would help.

Get a tuner SCT is the best on the engine, but I would go light on the tune you choose. A FICM tune is a very safe performance mod. The intake elbow only does anything if your over 500HP and still only adds a small percentage of power, in other words you have to be flowing huge amounts of air through engine for that to pay off.

I am not one for performance mods on the 6.0 because I don't think it's a good engine for high boost pressures because of it's 4 bolt per cylinder design. But it can be tuned and stay reliable with some work.
I am sure others will chime in on practicle mods that are worth the money. I will say the intakes do look good just do nothing for HP.

On most 03-04 engines if u leave the egr valve plugged in it won't set off a code. Some do though. I'm a fan of blocking off the egr cooler and leaving the valve in place. If it does through a code call up innovative diesel and get one of their custom tuned sct programmers they have been proven safe and can get u well into the 400 hp range on stock headbolts. Now down the road you should get studs for the heads. Also look into a 4 inch turbo back exhaust so u don't risk any ovetboost with the egr delete.
