Not trying to hijack his thread, but any idea which strategies are affected or lose power with the EGR valve unplugged?? I have seen several people say that it affects the fan and such but I have never seen year models or strategies that show which ones. And since I'm posting anyway, I did not see any mpg gain by doing my EGR delete. Might have actually saw a lose. But that could be because I have the block off plate installed and no EGR valve.
The only two I'm aware of is the 06-07 trucks with VXCF9 strategy causes fan not reaching full RPM. The other is 03-early 04 with VXAP2 strategy causes no vane sweep. There may be more, not many monitor fan speed on a daily basis to document which years and strategies have side effects of unplugging EGR valve.
