04 with throttle actuator

I finally got my accufab elbo this past week and decided to put it on this after noon and low and behold it was for the 05 and new 6.0's. After looking at the problem for a min I decided to go ahead and remove the what im guessing is the throttle body (egr throttle actuator) the new elbow sat perfectly in its place. Has any one else done this? Is this safe? I ran the truck a couple of miles to heat it up and I havent yet gotten any abnormaly codes other then the usual. Will the effect cold weather starting? I would appreciate any advice on this matter.

Wouldn't think so. Ford took it out because it gave no difference.

You're good removing the butterfly. That's what most people do anyways, won't hurt a thing.

Great! Cause, I was mad at first thinking I just wasted $100.00. The two plugs should I just tie them back out of the way? Also, just what exactly does the actuator do?

I think it was to lower manifold pressure for the EGR gases to flow easier.
