EGR Sytem Delete in ECU

Hey guys, just a quick question. What do you guys use (specifics) to delete the EGR system from the ECU after an EGR Delete? Can the AutoEnginuity tool do it?

Thanks

I hear this all the time, and have no idea what it means. Is this an SCT brand tuner? If so, which one? And do you have to have custom tunes, or is there a function to delete it?

Thanks

yes sct is the brand of the tuner, you then get ahold of a company that has custom tunes to upload to the tuner and then to your truck

so you have to get a custom tune that doesn't have the EGR system in it? You can't just use the stock settings and turn it off?

SCT (superchips custom tuning) you will have to get a xcal 3 with CUSTOM written tunes with the particular codes the a EGR delete kit will throw, theses codes will be disabled in the tune you load in the truck and no CEL will be illuminated.

I don't know if this will help in you're situation but I have an 04 F250 which I was running with the egr valve welded shut and unplugged. It is a CA truck so the cel was on when I unplugged the egr. I found a Ford mechanic who programmed my truck with what he said was a "federal emmission program" and this got rid of my cel. Hope this helps.

so is there any thing wrong with just blocking off the EGR cooler output to the intake manifold and then cleaning the EGR Valve and putting it back in there, so it just moves around and the computer "thinks" it has control? Will this negatively affect the system?
