Egr as waste gate

Is there a reason why the egr can't be used as a waste gate? I know it's best get rid of them in stock form but with a set of bullet proof coolers and the right program could it be done?

If you are okay with your intake manifold getting gummed up with soot, it's possible. Back pressure is best controlled with the VGT turbo though.

I know it's best to get rid of them. The only reason I ask is because of all the recent post about waste gates, blown up pipes and turbo piping.

Stock trucks that cycle the EGR valve blow up-pipes. It's a known weak link on these trucks. Some trucks will have the issue, others won't.

So you don't want the egr valve to cycle period?

I personally do not. I don't have anything related to the EGR on my white truck. It's been removed for over a year now. My intake manifold is spotless. Can't say the same for one that sees valve cycle.

Does the intake clear up after the delete if theres soot in there now? And do bulletproof coolers hurt the truck as much as stockers?

I think the only way to clean an intake manifold is to physically remove it and clean it. Between the EGR and the ccv it can get pretty nasty!

That would be correct.
