Electronic vs. Physical EGR Delete

Hey Guys, I know that a in general a physical egr cooler/valve delete would be the best, but since I am in a state that I could run into a visual inspection (MA). I went with the upgraded Bulletproof cooler instead with the thinking that I could electronically have the EGR valve tuned not to open. My question is, with this setup, Bulletproof cooler, ARPS, electronic EGR delete, and ELC coolant; would it be necessary/worth it to run a block between the up pipe and the cooler (sneaky pipe)? Thanks - Jeremy

You would have a better setup by blocking that off, question of course is will your truck pass MA's emissions with a tune or not. That I have no idea, also as I understand their emissions the entire stock exhaust system must also be present. I would say have a tune that shuts your egr, don't block anything, and a few days before inspection return it to stock. That would allow everything to look normal when the inspector hooks up to the OBII port. (Again this is my understanding of the MA inspections based on complaints I've read about)
