egr cooler plugged w/ edge juice w/ attitude help

hey i had a 6l at the shop, i installed arp head studs and i plugged up the egr cooler. i also installed a edge juice w/ attitude that i defiantly didnt recommend. i know there are much better programmers out there, but he is a paying customer and thats what he wanted?! now i know it would set a code, but i was wondering if anyone had any tricks up there sleeves to disable the erg valve from setting the codes. also on level 5 extreme, the egt's go soaring up to 13-1400 deg's. i know thats b/c of the egr cooler now being blocked off, and not cooling the egt's, but any help there would also be greatly appreciated.

thank you,
phil

Keep it off of the higher tunes or you'll be replacing heads next time. always sell a package. a custom tune for an EGR delete which eliminates EGR function and safeguards against burning your work to the ground and having them return all pizzed off, lol

Show him this page and tell him the Edge is junk. He needs the SCT on there to clear the codes, as far as I know its the only tuner available right now to do that.
