EGR delete & pesky CEL

Has anyone figured out how to get rid of the pesky CEL after a EGR delete, besides a tuner. Like a calibrated leak on the EB pressure tube when the EGR is suppose to open...

I'm gonna guess no on this one. What would be the purpose besides "not having to run a tuner"?? I wont say that it seems like a stupid idea but seriously, really? You would rather have exhaust leaking into your engine bay (I dont care how small of a leak it would be) than to just go buy a tuner to get rid of the CEL?? That just seems a little rediculous to me. JMO and am curious on the reasoning is all.

Check the forums for a used tuner to turn it off if that's all you want to do. Lot better then rigging up some hillbilly crap on your engine.

No, there is no way to "trick" the PCM into thinking the EGR cooler is still installed. You can't really go messing with the EBP sensor because it's also used for turbo management. The only other way to not have to use a tuner on a 06 up truck is to get your PCM "backflashed" to an 05. PHP does stuff like this but it's still around $200 I think. I'd just go the tuner route.

just plug in your egr valve and let it ride on top of the engine. No more light

On a 06 up truck you will still eventually get a check engine light when the PCM detects no EGR flow. Plugging the valve in will keep the check engine light from coming on right away, but eventually it will throw the light on. Unless you know something I don't know.....

This is for a friends vehicle who doesn't understand why she has to put a egr cooler on her truck every 3 years, she doesn't care about performance as much as she does reliability. So I have offered to replace the cooler with a delete kit and told her about the side effect is the CEL. Looks like she will have to come up with another $200-300 dollars.

I did a EGR cooler delete on a 05 Excursion and left EGR valve connected to the wire harness and it does turn the light on after about 45 minutes of drive time, the owner of the Excursion doesn't care he was glad it was blowing steam anymore and he didn't blow a head gasket.

I have an idea that I am going to bounce of old calibrator friend and see what he thinks. If works it will be a lot more cost effective that a tuner. for people who just want reliability.
