After EGR Delete, and MBRP 4" T/B Install.

Hello all,
Im sure these questions have been mentioned before, but I figured I would ask and get some fresh new answers.
I just finished an EGR cooler delete, I removed the restriction in the up pipe and had the cooler capped on both ends, than I pressure tested it and it don't leak so I put the cooler back in in order to keep the coolant flow. It is a 2006 f-350, K&N FIPK intake,4" MBRP T/B cat delete and no programmer. My question's are,

1. Is it normal to lose Boost after this ?. I noticed coming in the road the other day before I did this I was getting 29 PSI, Now I get 22 PSI Max, Is this because there is less restriction now?

2. I never disconnected the plug to the EGR, should I or should I not?. It did throw a check engine light.

3. I was thinking about going with the edge juice, is this good? and what are my options. I noticed people talking about SCT and being able to turn off the egr etc... can I do this with the edge programmer. I am not looking to make a monster truck. Would just like to get the truck power up a little maybe around 100HP, but most importantly get it running efficiently

Sorry about the long post and all the questions, but I figured I would ask my question's here, I find when i start looking for answers to one question you end up reading for hours and don't get to the other questions

The eng is more efficient in its operation with lower boost because of the egr and exhaust upgrades

OK that's good news, thanks for the info.

I had another question as well, I forgot to ask earlier. I engaged my 4x4 two days ago and the light came on but no 4x4, I went to turn of the 4x4 and the light would not go out I had to turn off the truck inorder to get it out. Now I cannot even get the light on. I checked the vacume it's good, I have power to the back of the switch but there is no power going down to the transfer case motor when I check it. As well is there only one fuse for this system, the only one I could find and it's OK is the one on the D/S in the engine compartment fuse panel.
