Advantages of removal over unplugging EGR

Can anyone explain to my why people remove the EGR system completely instead of just unplugging it when they delete. What are the pros and cons to both? I plan on deleting soon and I'm leaning toward just unplugging the erg unless there is a good reason to remove... Thanks in advance for responses.

I'm wondering the same thing. I've done lots of reading but can't find a good answer. I bought the delete kit but I'm thinking of just unplugging and/or using the blocker plates.

i thought it was because coolant still runs through it and there is a chance of rupture and leak into the engine but i could be completely wrong. I had mine removed was going to do the plates but the shop was against it

I haven't done mine yet but my understanding is that if you just unplug it soot can still build up on the EGR and if you ever return it to stock it could be too gummed up to work properly.

Using blocking plates along with unplugging should solve the soot issue right?

Yes because the valve in the EGR that gets messed up comes out with that assembly.

Let's not let the topic go off the rails...obviously soot will gum up the EGR, but is there a serious reason to delete the whole thing?... I'm thinking unplug the EGR and delete then 95k miles from now when the warranty expires I'll delete the EGR. This way if there is a problem the dealer just has to clean the egr cuz I put the dpf back on for warranty

I think the only downside to just unplugging is that some are having problems with check engine lights for the EGR when returning to stock.
