Yes, I believe the programming on the 04s won't throw a code if the EGR is deleted. My EGR is blocked off and I kept the valve in there. And even if it does throw a code some aftermarket tuning will take care of it.
Failed EGR coolers can be caused by a clogged oil cooler. Have you checked the oil temp compared with the coolant temp?

Yes it will, you will need to download LiveLoad off the SCT website, and add the EOT PID to the Livewire.

How to get SCT x3 to read eot vs ect

Thats right, goto the SCT website to download. I had to call SCT customer support, because mine wouldn't automatically download. They can do a remote download for you, by sending you a link to your e-mail, and they can do everything for you. I got the EOT update, and it let me know that my oil cooler was stopped up. I Replaced it, and now my temps are normal. Just from my experience, if you're going to do an egr delete, go ahead and change the oil cooler, while you have the intake off. It will only take you about an extra 30 mins. It will save you time and money in the long run.
