Yes it will throw a code, your better contacting a vendor on here for an SCT, with the SCT they can actually turn your EGR off. So you dont have to worry about that.

And doing a block-off will help reduce the chances of it cutting up even more. Mine was turned off with the SCT and was still opening up when it shouldn't and my truck was running like dog poo until Scott welded it up for me. Then it was back to normal.
