EGR delete - with a tune

I have an SCT Livewire and was wondering if there was a way to delete the EGR using a tune or does the delete require an equipment change?

You cant delete the egr without actually "deleting it" by removing it from the vehicle. You can turn it off with the tune but the components are still there, there is still coolant flowing through the coolers that could potentially crack. When you download a tune it should ask you if you have removed the egr components and you just select yes. It turns it off.

If you have the funds and don't have to worry about emissions testing, I would delete it.
