EGR delete before trip

I want to get opinions on doing a EGR delete 1 week before towing a 30' toy hauler about 350 miles or 7 to 8 hours. I'm not sure any issues that guys have had after a delete. I'm not sure if I should wait untill I get back to have work done. I got 2006 f250 6.0 90000 miles, have Sinister full delete and have a ford mechanic installing it.

EGR delete before trip

I have already been told that I will get a CEL, but a SCT can be written to turn that off.

No problem. Go ahead and do it. Check out your oil cooler and make sure that's good to go as well.

EGR delete before trip

The Oil cooler was replaced about 6 months ago and the STC fitting was replaced about 3 weeks ago (after being stuck in SC on side of I 95)Ha Ha. Thanks for all the input

Flush the cooling system with Restore and refill with Cat EC-1 rated ELC coolant (red). It is silicate free and will keep your new oil cooler from clogging again in the future.

I would plan on spending an entire day doing it becuase once you remove your intake plenum and see how much nasty tarry grime is in it, you will want to have it steamed clean. Think about this, only air passes through this intake ebcause of direct injection. I could not believe how nasty mine was after only 30k miles. I spent alot of time cleaning it myself in my driveway and got it sparkly clean. The blockoff should not thorw any codes because the valve continues to work, but gets no exhaust gases. This is a MUST modification.
