Question on my EGR delete

My mechanic did not remove the egr valve when he deleted my egr. should I be concerned? should I remove it and replace it with the cap that came with my kit? Thanks

Some trucks/tunes will set codes without the valve plugged in; some won't run the fan. If you unplug it and none of that happens, do whatever you like the look of.

And don't be surprised that it still will set of codes. It is also programmed to check the flow of EGR gasses as it operates if your tuner isn't set to run without EGR.

Thank you. My tune has the EGR delete with it, so I'll just leave it plugged in.

Thanks again!

not to steal this thread but I have a question that is somewhat related. I have the egr delete, the egr valve is still installed (no codes) and I now have a tuner. I have not disabled the egr function with the tuner yet, should I? Does it make a difference? I'm not seeing reduced boost pressures and haven't heard my fan run yet like so many others after turning it off. Thanks. Coach

I'd leave it in and connected and monitor it. My 05 has welded up-pipe, welded cooler both ends EGR valve in place and plugged in, no codes, fan and boost normal.
