EGR Disconnect

I am wondering if any knows if the EGR stays closed when you disconnect it, I have and 05 6.0L, i was thinking about buying a used one from the junkyard and plugging it in to eliminate DTC's, but was wondering if the unplugged one stay's closed.

The boost pressure will push it open some. I just welded mine shut to make sure it would not push open.

You could put a small weld on the valve to keep it closed,
