Throttle Plate removal 2004 F350

Has anyone removed their throttle plate on a '04, but kept their EGR valve in place? Is this possible? I would assume so, due to the fact that early '03's had this configuration. If possible, would it throw a trouble code based on the fact that (I believe) the '04 throttle plate was monitored by the system. I am throwing a trouble code for my throttle plate and would just rather remove it, but I would like to keep my EGR valve functioning. I don't know if this would clear up the "trouble plate open" code or just keep it on. Thoughts on this removal?????

to be honest with you, ive never seen or heard of any thread ever talking about a throttle plate on a 6.0..especially having to do with the EGR, not saying it doesnt exist. i really dont know..just never heard of it..i dont know a whole lot about the 03-04s i guess, i know there were some revisions in my 05 (and newer models) but didnt think they were a whole lot different..

Remove the CAC tube and intake elbow, push the throttle plate down, using a torx bit remove the two retaining screws that hold the throttle plate to the control arm, BE SURE to hold the throttle plate closed!! God forbid the screw drops in there....slowly allow the throttle plate to spring back to the starting position, hold the edge of the plate and pull it out. Reinstall the elbow and CAC tube.

So you removed the throttle plate but kept your ERG valve in place???? If so, did you throw any codes?

No, some trucks (I believe after mid-04) don;t even have them. My 05 does not have one at all.
