EGR DELETE OR NOT?

I HAVE READ ALOT OF INFORMATION ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF DOING AN EGR DELETE, WAS PLANNING ON DOING IT UNTIL TODAY.I PLANNED ON DOING A FEW MODS, INCLUDING EGR DELETE, EXHAUST AND PROGRAMMER AND CANT AFFORD STUDS AT THIS TIME. I READ SOME INFORMATION STATING THAT IF I DO THE ABOVE MODS AND NOT STUDS I WILL STILL HAVE HEAD PROBLEMS IF I DO THE ABOVE MODS WITHOUT STUDS, WHAT IS THE POSSIBILITY OF HAVING HEADGASKET AND HEAD BOLT PROBLEMS. RECOMMENDATION ADN OPINIONS APPRECIATED FORM YOU EXPERIENCED GUYS?

Deleting the EGR and EGR ooler will not cause your head gaskets to go any sooner. Go ahead with the delete and do the studs when you can.

Does anyone know if you just delete the EGR cooler and replace the up pipe with the EGR Valve is still in place will any codes be thrown running the stock file?

My rig is going in for studs, gaskets, egr cooler delete and coolant filter in a couple of weeks. They mentioned they will delete the EGR cooler and I believe a new up pipe. But they said the EGR valve itself will remain.

Guess I don't understand...maybe the EGR valve remains plugged in and doing nothing since the exhaust isn't going back into the engine?

I unplugged mine and have not not thrown a CEL. I have an 04 though and all the info I have read on this seems to be that the 04's don't throw codes for some reason, I personally am not sure why that is. I have read about people unplugging them and then plugging the valve back in before you turn the truck off. I am no expert on this, this is just what I found out researching the egr valve and cooler. I am sure somebody with more knowledge on this will chime in.

Save for the Studs and the investment will always pay off. If you dont you want to save for head gaskets and probably heads. after that save for a tuner I like my SuperChips Cortex programmer. From their on the moon is with in reach! but I would go for Bigger injecters. Good luck!
