I believe that just shutting it off, if you are running a 275 or under tune. The problem with shutting it off is, unless it cycles, say at start up it will carbon up and stick closed.

I was kinda wondering the same thing... If you 'permanently' shut it off using a DPF delete sys. and you potentially need to return to stock for warranty, then you have problems, no?

If I never need to take the truck to a dealer again, what's the risk of not using the EGR sys, and the valve basically never opening again? Seems like the Spartan's NOT reinstalling the Exh sensors on a DPF delete, aren't seeing the EGR do anything, but it will if the sensors are still plugged in based on the specific tune

I'm no expert, the egr valve can get stuck if you run a tune that does not cycle the egr valve for prolonged periods. Then it might have to be replaced if seizes up.

I have some experience with that...It's not like I'm a repeat offender It happened once...so far. The good news is Ford has updated the egr and housing so hopefully it won't happen again.

well, that was my question. If the EGR valve siezes shut, why do you need it to open if the truck is never going to be stock again? All im getting at is, unless you re-install the egt probes with a Spartan delete, the egr doesn't cycle on ANY tunes, incl stock DPF off

Unless you have mod friendly dealer most people return their to stock for warranty work.
