EGR Delete VS: bypass / unplug

I have been looking into this as it seems there are a few different thoughts. I have the DPF delete and S&B installed. Just trying to decide if I want to install the EGR delete kit I bought or not. Can someone chime in with the benefits of completely removing the system vs just unplugging it as per H&S installation manual?

You risk damaging your egr w it just unplugged. I believe it just closes the egr from the exhuaust manifold, but there is still a chance it will damage. I just did the block off plates for added security.

EGR Delete VS: bypass / unplug

So you left the EGR on but just used block off plates? Or you removed the entire EGR? If just plates can you put some pick up?

Yeah I left the egr just in case I have to take it to the stealership for work. I did the block plates from the manifold to the egr. I can moniter the egts also.

How do you risk damaging it? H&S recommends just unplugging it when you are DPF deleted...

Exhaust can still seep thru the egr and damage it. Its like an added safety feature. That way no exhaust can cake the egr up.

Just got my mini max programmer and am now looking into delete kits and exhaust that would work the best if something goes wrong and I have to return everything back to stock for the dealership?
