innovative tunes and egr??'s

got my truck back from the shop egr cooler went out. just curious i was under the impression that the IDP tunes keep the egr valve closed.(or if this was a problem that came up when i was running that 6 gun it took me awhile to see the light i have only been running IDP tunes for about 10K miles) so wondering how the egr cooler went out. dont know if its something i need to contact them about or if this is just chit happens type of thing. i am definetly planning on doing egr delete now once i get back closer to home that is. also if anyone out there that reads this has had experience with egr cooler failure how long did your truck smoke white after getting it fixed(on cold start it stops after warming up). its been 2 weeks i took it back once they reflashed the FICM and said everything was fine they said it will continue to smoke white for a little while due to buildups and the turbo and intake thanks for any advice.

Doesnt matter if your EGR valve is shut off or not. Exhaust is still flowing thru your EGR Cooler. Until you delete it, i will always be there. Has nothing to do with Eric and his tune. EGR failed it happens, thats why alot of folks go with the EGR delete prior to getting an SCT or right after.

BINGO, alot of people are under the assumption that they have a SCT and their EGR system is disabled, but as Kevin stated, the EGR valve typical duty cycle is 100% on and with the SCT they change the duty cycle to 95% off. But this doesn't prevent EGR cooler from blowing or EGR valve from gumming up.

back to the last part of the question is it normal for the truck to still smoke on cold starts.. id think after a few hundred miles that it would be gone.. unless there is still a problem that they have missed?? possibly injectors or something

it can take up to 500 miles to clear completely out, depending on how bad the EGR cooler was blown.
