What to expect after EGR delete

I just wanted to know what to expect after a EGR delete? Does the 15 Deg. delta, between EOT and ECT still apply? Should my coolant temps be lower? Will I see a power gain? Having the Sinister full EGR delete installed and have questions.

You are not going to see a power increase but you will definitely see your temps drop by a good amount. The temp variance between ECT and EOT is still going to remain the same just at lower temps..they just let you know if your oil cooler is starting to go which is very important.

probably better throttle response and cooler egt's... of course a CEL and i noticed a decrease in power and oomph. This is probably because egr valve wasnt left plugged in so im going to plug the valve in and lay it in there see fi i gainmy power back

Talk to Vivian about the power loss. I didn't loose any with mine. and I don't even own an egr valve anymore.

Everything should stay pretty much the same except you should spool up faster now that all the exhaust is going to the turbo instead of half the passenger side being diverted to the egr cooler. Maybe a check engine light that can be turned off with an SCT tune.

ECT is governed by the thermostat so it should stay pretty much the same although under load the ECT shouldn't climb as fast with the delete. Same temp delta applies.

im talking with her now, she said she had been trying to work on it for other customers with the problem, she said she cant code out the function of the EGR. She says the 05's are harder to fix this problem than the 06/07's but i thought it was for the 03/04's not the 05's

She said she's had customers plugging in the egr valve and the light goes away (but the codes are still stored) so i dont know what to do. PM if you'd like i'd rather this be an easy update of the tune than have to find a spare valve, and fiddle with things.

Like I told you before, give Doug at gogodiesel a call. My EGR was deleted on Friday and my EGR valve is sitting in his shop somewhere. No check engine light on my truck. I haven't looked for stored codes but am pretty sure they're present. My truck is an 05, BTW.

Will your cel and codes go away with a tune designed for EGR delete?
