egr tuner deletes

has anyone used the h/s tuners to turn off the egr and not remove any parts
wondering if this option was safe v/s removing the coolers and blocking them off.. should be the same effect but was not sure of any side effects of leaving the junk on and disabling the valve.. thanks

Your better off completely removing the coolers for the long haul, on the cheap you can put the block off plates in.

Pretty much all tuners turn of the EGR whether in place or not. Spartan lets it cycle on some tunes below the 275 at idle, and then some of the even lower tunes cycle like a normally stock truck would. Then they have their tunes you can download that all tunes keep the egr turned off. Anyways, it is very common to keep running the with the EGR in place. I did for a while under warranty, but coolers can still fail even though the valve is off. I recommend deleting the coolers and replacing the valve/elbow with an aftermarket elbow

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
