EGR Valve Dummy Plug???

I just fully deleted my EGR and wanted to know my options for getting rid of the valve without throwing a code. For the time being I have it plugged in and just laying on top of the motor. Ive been doin some searches without a whole lotta luck. Thanks for the help.

Most will tell you to unplug it with no ill effect, you can read these links and make your own decision. This will also depend on what year truck and stradegy. There really isn't a set answer. When you read the first link, it tells how the clutch fan won't reach full RPM. Without hooking up the truck to a GOOD scanner you will never know if you are reaching full RPM for the fan. The second link tells how the VGT won't cycle with the EGR valve unplugged.
