About to delete/tune... Got a question

I have a 12' 6.7 with almost 10k problem free miles. I have ordered an H&S MM tuner, 4" Flo-Pro exhaust w/o muffler, and S&B intake. I couldn't decide on exhaust with or without muffler. Figured I would try straight pipe and if i don't like it then I will add muffler. I did a lot of researching on this forum before deciding on this combo.

My question is... I have seen a lot of people talk about EGR delete kits. I was under the impression that my H&S tuner will bypass the EGR without having to completely delete/unbolt the EGR. Is that correct? I don't want to run EGR but would like to keep it bolted in case I need to return to stock.

The tuner will bypass the EGR but you need to delete it. Its not that bad to put the block off kit on. Its fairly easy to return to stock if you ever need to.

might be a dumb question but what is the point of deleting the EGR if the tuner bypasses it?

High boost can still blow through the valve.

If you just get the h&s block off plates I believe they are like $35.00 the 2 plates replace the short egr pipe going from down pipe to egr.

The plate that bolts on to the downpipe has a spot to bolt on an exhaust sensor that you take out of the stock exhaust which will read your exhaust temp.

The other plate bolts onto the top of egr.
