egr delete after thought question

Ok so a few weeks ago i did the delete and studs.... took a little while for the truck to run like it used to as far as power. I am sure thats pretty much just the pcm re-learn so that is of no concern. I have had something cross my mind however. I have an 04 so that means i have that throttle butterfly deal right under the intake elbow, i have read that it is there to force the engine into drawing in more exhaust gas by closing up a little bit. Now that i have the delete should i also pull out that butterfly? I can only assume that it still acts as it did while i had the egr cooler installed.

It's a simple thing to try but I think you will need the newer '05 elbow to check your idea.

Or just unscrew the "throttle" plate and run it like that..... i have spent enough money in the past 2 months i dont need to get more stuff to "try" something out just for the hell of it. No disrespect intended.

Does your CEL come on? Do you have an EGR delete? Or just running with out the butterfly?
