EGR delete question

i just recently did my egr delete and oil cooler. i have read all the threads about having to keep the egr valve hooked up in order to keep the computer happy. so question is: do i just keep it hooked up and laying on top of the engine with the block off plate installed or should i keep it in the factory location hooked up? does it make a difference and will have any affect on anything else? thanks

I also have a 2006 PS truck and have had the EGR cooler deleted along with a new up pipe. From what I have read and understand just leave the EGR valve in place and electrically plugged in. Keeping it plugged up keeps the cooling fan working properly. If your truck is like mine you will still a P0401 code (low flow code) and a check engine light but all can e fixed with a SCT tuner.
Hope this helps.

Correct. Just keep it plugged in and tied off somewhere.

Ok so it doesn't need to be bolted tinto the intake, just plugged in? I have an sct and my tunes have the egr turned off so that should not be an issue

On my O6 I keep it plugged in at the spot it was meant for. Who wants a EGR valve floppin around just because of a shiny peice of aluminum. Keep it where its at. IMO

Correct. As long as it's plugged in, you're good.

is there any advantage either way? if we have to leave it plugged in the why would companies sell a block off plate . i agree, the valve just plugged in dangling there would look kind of foolish. would you get better intake flow with it out?

Because shiny bits sell.

Nope, like I said above, no advantage, beyond avoiding potential "fan on" command issues.

egr/cooler delete question, please help !!!!!

ok, i just deleted my egr cooler on my 2005, 6liter about 3months ago. i just pulled my camper on about a 5 hour trip to the beach. my truck unloaded runs just fine. with my 5th wheel camper in tow, the cooling fan will not kick out like it used to , it stays engauged constantly. i have a sinnister egr cooler delete kit, which includes the new down pipe, and egr valve block off plate. my truck will only do 60mph up the long hills on the iinterstate, but will run about 80mph on the flats, but the fan slows down a lil, but will not disengauge. my truck is all stock, except the cat is deleted, and an air-raid intake. after reading all of the earlier post, do i need to put my egr valve back in, to make the fan cool/engauge properly??? any info would be greatly appreciated. thanks, jason

You need to have the EGR valve plugged in. Whether or not it is in the intake doesn't make a whole lot of difference, but wouldn't it just make sense?
