Can you turn off the egr CEL with the SCT

I have the EGR delete and my truck shows the CEL as a result. I also have the model 3015 SCT tuner to turn it off when I am running the custom tunes from Gearhead. My question is can I run the truck stock and turn off the CEL? I have just come in from hooking the tuner up and scrolled through every menu I could in trying to find a menu to go into in order to turn off the egr, am I missing something?

Matt at Gearhead turns the egr off in the tune so you won't have the option in the menus to turn it off.

The SCT does it automatically... no matter if its custom tunes or canned tunes.

I have the SCT TSX and when I return. To stock I can't turn off the egr. The reason is that its STOCK. Ford programing was for the egr to function so the stock program will cause the CEL to illuminate if you have and egr/valve delete.
