You are likely going to need the housing that the EGR valve goes into also. I tried to take one off a truck with 19k miles on it, and it was seized in the housing. Broke the tool, valve, and housing.
It's a very poor design, interference fit with no gaskets.
You need the puller to make an attempt at getting it out. I have had some luck using an air hammer to get them out, also.
Why are you doing this on your own? Do you not have any warranty left? The housing is somewhat expensive, and it's fairly difficult to change, there's a bunch of tubes and crap in the road for a couple of the bolts, and ideally you should remove the vertical EGR cooler to get the housing and gaskets and junk all oriented properly.
