question about EGR delete and throttle body

Hi guys, I have a 2004 Superduty 6.0. I'm planning my EGR delete. I wish to use the Sinister Kit, and basically not use a tuner, just stay stock. I'm happy with the performance as is, and wish to just eliminate the "weak links" in the system, such as the Ford Gold coolant, plugged oil cooler, etc.

Now my engine has a electronically controlled throttle body that closes to allow exhaust gas to enter the intake. With the EGR delete, what should I do with this setup? 1) leave it alone? 2) disconnect it? 3) remove the throttle plate, so it can rotate with no effect?

Personally, I'm considering choice #3, anyone here have any experience with my scenario

Get yourself an 05-07 intake elbow and get rid of the throttle body.
