EGR and HG question

i posted in the motors section, but not as much traffic there. anyway I did an egr delete. I know for sure now that i didnt get the upper plug seated all the way and is leaking....But now after digging around im nervous about a HG issue. IF i had a problem with my HGs and ive deleted, will that now increase my chance for HG failure? ive read due to the wasting in the coolers and those are gone now.........Seems like a danged if you do danged if you dont kinda deal.

Ive ran the 250 tune with my h&S and dpf delete for the last 11000 miles or so. sitting at 42k on the truck. dont race it. every once in a while ill hit the skinny pedal.

The egr wasn't functioning on the 250 tune anyways so I would think that physically removing the egr and coolers just eliminates the possibility of the coolers rupturing. Since it wasn't functioning anyways I can't see why removing it would cause and more stress.

Well that was also my first thought. I read one post about wastegating and i was wondering if there was any truth to that or not. kinda made me nervous. You dont really need a wastegate unless you are running some higher HP right? or do you ever. just trying to get this all together in my mind

Yeah as far as I know a wastegate isn't needed unless you are planning on making some pretty big power. I know what you are saying though. There are so many options & variables with the potential of these motors that it sometimes gets a little confusing.

Well GERRY helped me out on my other post. Turns out im fixed up for now. going to drive it around for the weekend around home just to make sure. I forced the upper plug in and ripped the whole bottom of the o-ring. 99 cent fix and a little oil rubbed on the ring this time and it just slid in like butter....and no more leak. Now i gotta clean the engine because there is antifreeze everywhere....it blew into the fan and WOW!

while im on the topic ill show you my front pan bar ....does this look ok. its ****ed alittle. this is a straight on shot. lift was used so i assumed that the panbar was already set so i didnt adjust it. however my steering wheel is turned compleetely sideways and im not sure how to get it back to center.. Something about undoing the clamps on the drag bar and turning them. i need it to go back half a turn to the left to be back to center
