question about EGR delete

I am about to install my EGR delete kit with intake elbow. I got the PTP kit. I want to know if it will be ok running this kit without the wastegate on the 175 H&S tune or If I will have to worry about gaskets failing and stuff.. Is there an issue with this method not holding up? I know its something u MUST do on the 6.0.. Thanks Guys. I have everything ready to go I just want to make sure I am doing the right thing by deleting it. I will wastegate eventually but money is tight right now...

Bump any input?? I am traveling 2500 miles from Colorado to Maine towing a LOADED down 28ft enclosed trailer with my 4 door rubicon and 4 wheeler everything else I own, is there anything that could arise from doing the delete that should make me wait till I get to Maine?

Wish I could answer you....I'm curious too. My guess is if you drive your truck without beating the p!ss out of it, you should be fine. I wouldn't run it without a wastegeate for too long.

From everything i have read a wastegate is not necessary until you add fuel.

This sounds like a pretty dumb question, but I truly don't know.... and I'm not trying to derail the thread. If we need a waste gate once we get high into the HP game, then what is currently regulating the amount of boost that our trucks make? I was under the impression with previous turbo cars, that the waste gate regulates the boost, and a BOV helps prevent surge going back into the turbo when you let off the throttle.
And i have also heard from some legit sources on here that you don't need a waste gate until you start adding more fuel. Jeff Dodd with Spartan doesn't run one either i don't think, and he makes like 641 wheel HP

Thanks for the info guys! I am right in the middle of the delete right now. SO far so good. I will also be changing out my fuel cooler pump as well. I am doing a time lapse of the delete and install of the pump... ANy special method to bleeding the air out of the cooling system once I refill? I am going to do the flushes with restore and + and am adding ZEREX EC-1 Cat coolant.
