A lot depends on what year you have. 03-04 wont or might not throw a code. 05's and up, yes they will throw codes, and you will need a tuner to turn it off.

Its not whether you buy a delete kit or not. Most delete kits will throw a code. What you need is a custom tuned SCT to turn off the egr completely along with an egr delete.

Mine has been welded for about a year now and I have had no issues. But, I have an 04 and unplugging it does not throw the CEL. From what I have been told about this is that you could just leave yours unplugged and just get used to seeing the CEL, or plug it back in every time you turn the truck off, but that would be a pain in the arse in my opinion.

Pretty much. When I hooked up to a chapter members scanner to diagnose the issues I was having, it said the EGR circuit was bad, which I already knew since it was unplugged. I have had NO performance issues running it the way I do.

Just don't screw up your egr valve or it can cost you a lil scratch! It really isn't a big deal to do at all, just remember to clean it real good and remove the o-rings first.
