Exhaust Back Pressure/EGR Question
I've been running a 250HP tune that turns off the EGR, except at idle. I've been running this tune for over 45,000 miles.
I just did the full EGR delete (removed the coolers, cooler brackets, intake & EGR valve) and installed a Flo-Pro EGR delete kit with elbow.
Some folks say that there is sufficient Exhaust Back Pressure with the 250HP tune that I should install a Waste Gate. Others say that it isn't needed.
Won't my Exhaust Back Pressure with the EGR delete be the same as it was running a tune that turns off the EGR?
If so, I've lived without a Waste Gate for 45K+ miles without issues, so I'm not sure if one is needed with the way that I drive my truck.
