If your cooler is removed then the valve is not performing any function other than keeping the light from coming on on your dash. If you pull the vlave out you will not see a differance in anything. It doesn't hurt to leave it there, spend the money on something else. Since your running the SRL tune you need the valve plugged in to keep the light off.

I gotta say that is one nice looking piece of billit. I'd like to hear their reasoning for designing it to "fill the hole".

One kind of cool thing I see about it is it appears to be ported for a boost gauge already.

But, I gotta agree with tnet69, totally unnecesary.

If you really want the valve out of there, you might look into the block off plates like those that come with most delete kits. I'm sure one of those could be had for way less $$$$. And look cleaner from the top to boot.

boot.
The idea of the spool plug is to keep coolant and exhaust gasses out of the intake when used with the factory EGR cooler. I went that direction for the EGR delete, I did a EGR cooler delete up pipe(sneaky pipe), used a blocker plate on the exhaust side of the cooler, and made a spool plug where the EGR valve goes.

This was easier for me to just remove the turbo to take out the stock up pipe, and block off the EGR cooler on both sides instead of removing the intake and EGR cooler. To each there own.

OK. I see it now. I appreciate the explanation.

I wasn't thinking along the lines of the sneaky delete when I saw this. I like it. Added insurance when you need to go sneaky. Pull the blocker out come inspection time, drop in a live EGR valve, stick it to the man. I could really get on board with a product like this.

All you need is something to cover the hole in the top of the intake. If the egr cooler is gone or blocked off sneaky style there is no exhaust gas entering the intake and if the sneaky was properly blocked off at both ends of the cooler even if the egr cooler were to rupture no coolant is going to get into the intake.

A simple cover cut from 1/4 aluminum like comes in most delete kits is all that is needed. You could make one at home in 1/2 hour for about $15.
