possible egr trick

Could I take my egr valve out, leaving it plugged in. And put a old one that's closed back in the manifold. Without throwing any codes or lights?

Seems like it would work. We still have a giant scoop that obliterates half the up pipe tho

You would likely get a soft code for insufficient EGR flow. It depends on the strategy, but most 05+ PCM's will set a soft code (meaning no Check Engine Light).

I wouldn't want a chuck of metal just laying around on top of the block though.... But yes, in theory it should work.

The egr that's plugged in could be zipped tied up out of the way. It wouldn't when a show in shine, but its better than dealing with a check engine light. And it will by me some time to get the full egr delete and custom tunes

Since the truck may throw a soft code, where is the sensor for the amount of flow? Ir is that part of the egr valve?

This is as close as I can get to finding the sensor. Not sure if the EGRVP is what does the work.

It may end up being a group of readings. Not sure. Probably is the valve. Maybe a tech may come on and share the secret!
