Pulled the trigger

Well, I guess I just cant leave well enough alone. I pulled the trigger and ordered all my parts for Delete. Using a mini max.
The question I have is about the EGR. What is the benefit / Pro's & Cons of getting block off plates, or just unhooking the wires?
Parts should be in next week, then I'll just need to get a free day to install.

Just leaving it in place is best.
Very little benefit other than space and looks.
Fairly big job to take off and put in if you need warranty work.

I would just do the blocker plates, that way you can have the EGT probe to get pre-turbo temps. Its a task to take out the whole cooler, I will wait for that a while down the road, only 700 miles on mine so far.

Took less than 2 hours to remove egr. Less crap to break or leak now.

Ok, got everything on. Got a question or 2.
If I set pyro to H&S, do I need to do anything else with pyro settings?
What exactly is defuel? And if I set pyro to h&s, does that override defuel or is it something to set myself?
If I don't have blocker plates and probe, I still have no way to watch egt's?

Thanks in advance for your answers!

Edit: by the way, this thing is like a different truck! I'm gonna have to learn to keep my foot out of it!

As far as my EGR goes i am using the blocker plates and unplugging from the cooler. Doesn't hurt anything to leave it there and ALOT less headache than removing it.

CrazyFrog i too got my stuff in just like your setup. Anxious to see how it does

Crazyfrog, did you ever get an answer to your questions about the DPF cleaning override? What else did you have to do to enable it to do that?

I'm not sure I know what your question is.
The DPF is no longer there, and the tuner is set to understand that.

That answered it perfectly. Did your fuel MPG change? How difficult was it to delete the DPF?

My overall average went up about 1.5 mpg, due to not regenerating. Its not hard to do, but heavy and awkward. Have a friend help that is mechanically inclined.
