CA "legal" EGR delete

Whats the best kit/method for deactivating the EGR and still pass the California visual smog inspection. Not that I would, just curious!

Leave EGR valve and wiring in place. Weld up both ends of the stock EGR cooler. Use a SCT to turn off the light. "Not that I would ever do this".

Leave everything as is, just pull the egr cooler and drive freeze plugs in. Then reinstall.

Parts are the pic in my sig, can get the freeze plugs at O'reilly

Just driving in the freeze plugs have been known to come out and take out the turbo. I would at least tack them in. But if you completely weld them in then you also have no chance of water in case of a cooler leak.

If you plug the cooler you will get an egr flow code depending on year of truck. You would need a "smog tune" from a tuner. I personally went with a bulletproof egr cooler.

I have a BPD cooler with a solid uppipe and plug on back of cooler, my EGR valve is welded shut. I passed smog with ID Extreme Street installed that shuts off EGR.

Would I see a gain in performance just by unplugging the EGR? I'm doing head studs here in the next 6 months and I will get the cooler welded at that point. Right now I'm just looking to get some more stank out of the truck. There's no troubles with the truck other than horrible low end power(below 2000 rpm) and I just got an SCT Livewire TS to take care of the tuning needs.

Happened to mine but I was lucky enough to find a dealer that took care of me under warranty.
