i havent heard of it lowering egt's,but you will see more boost.with a chip of course.
i live in the south,so mine is not really needed,if you live were it is cold,then yes,you might consider leaving it.or take it out,just keep your truck plugged in.
when you delete,take the turbo off,take the rod loose from pedistal,take the round metal insert out,pull the guts,go to the hot side of the turbo and take the butterfly valve also.the rod will leave a hole in the pedistal,tap the hole and run a bolt up in there,use the oil pan sealer you get from ford,put it on the bolt,then run er up in there.also make sure the o-ring is in good shape on the round metal insert.
the butterfly valve on the hot side is attatch to a rod itself,the bottom will have a hole left behind as well,when you gut it.get you a freeze plug and tap er up in there...replace turbo...enjoy.
on edit: make gosh dang shure you plug them holes good.if not,she will pee everywere(oil).and thats alotta labor...but you will see more boost.i have a chip(TW) and with it gutted im seeing 30 plus psi,
