EGR Delete and fan issues

I have the Ex tore down for an oil cooler and EGR cooler failure. I've read where several people have have done EGR deletes and then have fan issues. Is this common? I want to do an EGR delete but I don't want to worry about the fan not operating correctly. I was thinking about sending the PCM to PHP to have the EGR turned off. Anyone done this? I don't have the cash right now to order a SCT. I would love to have your guys feedback. Thank.

you plug the EGR valve in and tuck it out of the way to prevent fan issues or atleast have it handy to plug in if you do have issues mine does not seem to care if I unplug it or not

what year is your x ? are you sure your delete won't through codes and need a tuner anyway ?

I would never send My PCM to PHP or anywhere for programming ( I am not sure they even do that? )
i would just get a tuner to turn off the EGR if thats what you wanted

Normally the only time you will run into a problem is if you do not leave the egr valve electrically connected.

IIRC, Dependent on your strategy, I believe, removing the valve effects fan operation. You can leave your valve plugged in and off to the side. I did that for a while before I got the coin for the SCT. You will have a CEL for something like "egr insufficient flow" or such. The mechanical portion of my valve is now removed, bit it is still plugged in and the rest is bolted to the top of my intake on top of an egr block off plate to look stock.
