Questions about EGR after delete

Hey guys I just got my truck back from getting studded & deleted and some more stuff. Ive heard some people leave the egr valve in place and leave it connected electronically because if not it can affect the engine fan. I have it blocked off right now, should I put it back in?

I have mine cable tied to the alternator. It's your choice if you want it tied to the side or pul back into the intake, but either way plug it in electronically.

I ran mine with the egr valve in for a month or longer after deleting the cooler. I've been running it now 5 months or so with the valve removed and the sinister plate on it and I can tell absolutely no difference in the fan engaging or anything else

So best idea is just zip tie it somewhere in there and plug it in? Don't bolt it back into place?

That's a chance your willing to take. You might not notice any difference, but you would need a diagnostic scan tool like Ford's IDS or Autoengunuity to be sure your fan is reaching full RPM. Is it really worth the risk.

Myself and others had issues with the VGT vane sweep not working when the EGR valve is unplugged.

IMO, it's up to you on what you want to do. Either way is fine as long as it's plugged in electronically.

I left mine plugged in and in place. Why leave it dangling around in there with zip ties. Plus I like the sleeper look. Looks stock but she isn't. Lol. I have the sinister kit too with the sweet cap but I don't need any more zip ties under the hood, all the snow plow, hid, strobe lights make a huge mess with all them wires
