Tuner question/advice

OK, I've got a 2008 F250 King Ranch 6.4L. I have an Edge CTS 'Racing' Tuner, (85700) and have removed the Cat & DPF. The DPF delete tunes work very well, and I love the Edge displays. The truck runs very well, but I'm looking to remove the EGR, but the Edge Race tuner does not handle EGR delete. Now I'm torn between buying a new tuner, or leaving the EGR and coolers on there. I don't have emmissions to deal with, so the EGR delete seems like the thing to do, so which tuner does everyone recommend, one with decent PID displays like the Edge CTS has, or just leave it alone?

Thanks!

Delete the EGR and it's Spartan all the way, best monitor out there!! If you tow regularly then I'd say get the mini-max and take advantage of shift on the fly, but if you primarily leave it on one tune then Spartan gets it done for sure!!

If you can wait a week or so we will have our 6.4 EGR delete kits out for sale. They will be 249.00 shipped.

Eric, that includes the intake elbow? What about the intercooler pipe? I need a deal too good to pass up to get the old lady to agree to it!!
