EGR bracket

I have been looking around and could not find anything on this. My question is this, has anyone tried or heard of someone cutting the rear EGR bracket off after delete in order to be able to pull the intake without removing the turbo? I can't think of any reason why it would still be needed other than if you have to put the EGR back on down the road. I'm currently doing the oil cooler and it would be nice not to have to remove up-pipe from turbo as it is a huge PITA to get back on correctly.

I just did my oil cooler not too long ago. I thought about doing the same thing. I already had my egr cooler delete done and thought I could squeeze it outta there. I went ahead and took my turbo out. I figured why try to fix something if it ain't broke. I almost grabbed the sawsall and went after it. But then I thought what if I cut something else in the process. I opted for the turbo coming out

Yea, a sawsall would probably lead to a mistake, but I'm thinking a hack saw would work and since it's aluminum wouldn't be hard or take long at all. Just not sure if that bracket provides some kind of rigidity or if it's something I should have done long ago and will be mad for not have done it sooner.

Just rigidity for the mounting of the egr cooler. That's all.

Just thought you might want to know it came off with very little effort. About 10 min of sawing by hand, intake came right out. I hit it with a grinder after to clean up the cut a bit.
