EGR Delete= No Fan Clutch

Trying to get some good data on this whole fan clutch problem after deleting the EGR and unplugging the valve. There are threads out there about the fact that the fan clutch will not operate properly after installing an EGR delete and unplugging the valve... Is this true? Maybe Chan can comment on this... Any help would be greatly appreciated

I've heard this recently as well. Not sure on the specifics but i could of sworn i heard my fan kick in a couple weeks ago while pulling our jeep on a trip. Oil temp was around 200 and coolant temp around 115. Fan kicked on and stayed on until temps got under 220 or so. Is it that it doesn't turn on or just doesn't run at the right speeds?

It isn't that the fan won't kick on, it just won't cycle to 100% duty cycle. I'm not sure if it is specific to certain strategies.

I pretty sure that if you have the latest strategy, it will disable the cooling fan if the EGR valve is not connected

Correct with the newest strategy you have to have your EGR valve plugged in.

it doesnt have to be sitting in the intake though

Anyone else? This is a big deal!!! Sounds crazy that the EGR valve is connected to the fan but sounds like it might be the case. Has anyone been able to prove this?
