Another EGR delete question.

Getting ready to buy the EGR delete but I have a question. I don't have the funds to get the SCT to remove the code i'll get from the delete. So if I take the egr valve out but leave it plugged up will this work or not.

what year of truck? 05-07 will throw the code. leave the egr in the intake because all it does is move a valve up or down from lower chamber to upper chamber otherwise you'll have an open intake manifold.

My truck is an 05. What i'm asking about is removing the egr valve leaving it plugged up and installing the block off plate in it place.

just leave the valve in place and plugged in, it wont hurt a thing. my 06 on stock tune with the valve plugged in throws no codes. i took it to the dealer like this and they never said anything and never found any codes either.

Thanks,
Adam

You will throw a code for insufficient flow, the PCM will not see exhaust flow from the valve.

You just can't remove the plug and put a cap in it's place. What would happen is you will be putting constant hot exhaust gases back into the intake. This will cause poor performance, and bad MPG. You would need to use a EGR valve plug like this one on the bottom of this link.EGR

There are cheaper versions of this plug on e-bay. But your better off saving your money to get a full delete. My question to you is, do you have a way to monitor the ECT and EOT? You need to monitor these temps, whether you do a full EGR delete, use a plug, or weld the EGR cooler. With monitoring these temps, you don't know the condition of your oil cooler.

I am planning on doing the full egr delete kit. Either RCD or Sinister kit haven't made up my mind yet. So I should do the delete but leave the valve in place and plugged up until I get the funds for the SCT then pull the valve and block it off.

Even if you do the EGR cooler delete, you might get a code for insufficient exhaust flow. With a EGR cooler delete, your deleting the flow of exhaust gases going back into the intake. You still might need the SCT to prevent the CEL to come on.

+1. Just done a sinister on a 05. Three starts later, what now. Insufficent exhaust flow detected. It runs great and have no problems with the sinister kit, just that light stares at me all the time.lol. Gonna find someone in TN to turn it off for me when I get time.

You may find someone to clear the code, but it's gonna come back on. Your gonna need a SCT to turn off the CEL for the EGR codes. The SCT will keep the CEL off, but allow the CEL to come on for other codes.
