Would you delete if you were me?

Bought truck over a year ago, passed emissions then added Mini Maxx and deleted DPF. Kept EGR just in case on next emission go round...just went through and passed...kept DPF off and just removed Mini Maxx with tune running. Tech plugged into ODB port, received communications failure, he shrugged his shoulders and performed a smoke opacity test, which I passed.

So now I am wanting to perform a complete EGR delete, but am questioning if the benefits outweigh the possibility that they would change the testing process and I'd have to add it all back on. The EGR is closed with Mini Maxx (at least as I understand it), so I am better than stock, but is the extra protection of eliminating a possible cooler failure worth it? What would you do if you were me?

Do they just do a visual inspection from now on? Cause you have disabled the egr in the computer already so they would know that through the obd2 port now wouldn't they?
If its only a visual for the egr valve and cooler, you could take them off and weld plates inside of them and reinstal them to look like they are there. And then you would still be protected from hydrolocking the motor. Could possibly bypass the coolant lines too.
When I lived in Tucson a friend of mine had to get his old land cruiser checked. it had no emmisions when he bought it, so we dummied up some crap on it to look like emisions and ran it through, it passed the tail pipe test with out all that crap.

if you have to go in for inspections then I would keep the egr on.

What you could do is egr block off plates and if you wanted to you could re route the coolant line and its like a full delete but keeps everything stock-ish looking

I'd do what Travis suggested for emissions tested EGR deletes.
