I unplugged the egr valve(after replacing it) and am experiencing good results.
Do I really need the egr delete or can I leave unplugged? Am I going to cause problems leaving it unplugged?

Unplugging the EGR valve may cause issues with the clutch fan reaching full RPM and VGT vane sweep cycling.
Depending on your strategy, You'll be able to tell if your vanes aren't sweeping at idle, but for fan operation, you'll need to be able to command the fan to full RPM with a diagnostic scan tool.
It's your choice, leave it unplugged and hope for the best, or plug it back in maintain the valve by cleaning it every other oil change.
