No because the egr valve has to be removed for the new pipe to be inserted. There is such a thing that ive seen that reroutes the system or something like that. its something youd have to reasearch though im not exactly sure about it.

I did my own EGR delete on my 09 and i found it to be a pain. Its not terribly hard, but it can get frustrating removing the coolers. Theres not a lot of room to work and i should have got myself more familiar with the system before just tearing into it. Lots of stuff gets removed. Just give yourself plenty of time and make sure you have an assortment of tools to use. Small ratchets and wrenches were a help for me. penetrating oil and if you have a buddy willing its nice to have an extra set of hands or body just to get you tools.
If you have prior experience with diesels you will probably fair better then I did, but its not a big deal.

You can put in block off plates that just slide in. It will not be as effecient as a full egr delete as there is still the chance of a cooler cracking or something, but it will help keep the heat out of them to reduce this chance. Then when its time for inspection you just slide the plate out

I probably had 4 in mine, but I knew absolutely nothing about the egr system. I have done several lift kits and other bolt on mods, but to me that was a different breed of cat

I did mine in about 41/2hrs brackets and all. I could've done it faster if it had'nt been for that POS top bolt on the bottom cooler that connects to the exhaust. Word to the wise use a 6pt boxed end wrench on that one hahaha.

With the H&S Mini Max, If you are running the DPF removed tunes in either mild or HD300, your EGR system is deactivated( shut off). IF you use the easy tune, even in the DPF removed tune, the programming will operate the EGR valve. With the EGR valve deactivated their will be no exhaust flow through the coolers so the chances off them oveheated & cracking/leaking are low. Some say the EGR valve can be forced open even when deactivated under certain conditions from excessive exhaust backpressure on the high HP tunes.
