6.0 bad egr

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and pretty new to diesels in general. I have a stock 06' KR CCLB with 109k. Over the past few weeks, my truck has had intermittent rough Idling, dead pedals approximately 5 seconds at a time, and it stalled out at a traffic light. I finally gave in and paid for a ford diesel diagnostic. It came back with a bad egr diagnosis. I am planning on doing an ipr gen 2 delete kit with the oil cooler. I know I should leave the egr valve plugged in but since the egr valve is faulty do I need to replace it just to leave it plugged into the intake? It seems like that would be a waste of money, but I don't know what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The next thing you need to do (IMO) is get yourself a monitor. Scanguage or a EDGE or any of the newer fancier set up. Your are running through the forest with your eyes closed until you get one.
If you are doing a EGR delete then I do not believe it would matter if the egr valve itself is functional at all. Heck Ive read that some guys plug them in and just leave them up on the motor.
You might also check and make sure that you don't have any state inspections that could bite ya for delete it as well.

Agreed^... Leave the egr valve in and you will not get any trouble codes for the egr valve. If you have emissions testing in your area... I'm sure you know of it. If you do, I'd delete the erg cooler the sneaking way. (Weld plugs in both ends of the erg cooler)
