Safe to drive like this?

Ok, well I replaced my up pipes ( and downpipe while I was there)this weekend and I discovered the only the passenger side up pipe was blown, and the crossover OC pipe that goes to the EGR cooler was blown as well. I did not expect the OC pipe to be blown, and therefore didn't purchase one prior to tearing into this thing. And rather than spend money replacing that pipe, I'm opting for putting that money towards Egr removal instead. At this point, I have installed a plate with a bung for the sensor where the OC pipe used to bolt to, and ordered a Spartan Dashdaq, will order a EGR delete kit as soon as possible, BUT, For now, Is it ok the drive the truck with that EGR cooler open to atmosphere? Or will it suck in unfiltered air when the valve opens? Should I plate that off as well, or put some sort of temporary filter? or don't worry about it? It's only 14 miles (9.5 highway) to work in the morning, then back. I'm currently running the Edge Race Evolution, and I'm worried it will throw a CEL and go into limp mode with no hot exhaust flowing through the coolers.
FYI I have already takin it on a few test drives, only 6 or 7 miles each way, but so far, huge improvement, turbo actually spooling up better than ever, no codes , no problems... I think....

Not sure about an answer to your question but did you go with a stock replacement or a heavy duty replacement uppipe from rudys? If mine ever go i think i will go with the 6.0 manifolds and uppipes.

Yep, I totally agree with ya, but money has been tight, and I had been putting this off way too long so I had to go with the Ford stock replacements for now. Since welding and fabrication is what I do, I intend to use my old ones as a mock-up to build my own heavy duty set.
