EGR Delete CEL question

Ok everyone, I don't want to be the guy that asks the question thats been answered a hundred times but I've searched high and low and read post after post and cant find it... Maybe I'm just blind

My 06 6.0 finally had the EGR crap out. New valve is $200, Alligator performance has a delete kit for $270. So here is the question. I know I need a tuner to turn off the CEL after a delete, but if I don't, would it cause a problem? Is the truck going to run right if I clear the code before install? Could I get away with cruising around with my CEL on for a few weeks so I can save up $ for the tuner I want?

I can't afford a tuner and a delete kit at the same time!

Thanks in advance for any help!!

If anyone know anything about this alligator performance kit theyd like to share I'd appreciate that too. It was in a issue of diesel power so I assumes it must be fairly well... right???

Awesome, Thank you. Ill probably go with that one..

One last question... Leave the valve in and plugged in or remove it and block it off? Ive seen a lot of answers that go either way and cant figure out what anyone says is the best option!!

Yes, some people with newer strategies have reported having engine fan issues when they unplugged the valve.

I always leave the valve in whenever I do an EGR delete-Don't see the need to remove it, and it keeps the wiring harness from getting corroded and hanging. The only code you'll get is EGR flow insufficient if you leave the valve in and plugged in, rather than a plethora if you remove it.
