Removing the EGR prevents exhaust gases from entering the combustion process. Spool up is quicker as all the air flow goes to spinning the turbo. By adding exhaust air to combustion, the inert gases limit how much oxygen (fresh air) can enter the cylinder. Less oxygen = less powerful burn = lower temps.

There is a EGR delete kit out there somewhere I believe. Not sure where to find one, but it can and has been done.

Are you talking about blocking the system, or totally removing it? It can be done either way, but the latter is a lot more work!

It also helps prevent an egr cooler failure.

I have my blocked off. But you can totally remove it too. I bet that would mess with a tech if they were not expecting to see it gone

I have a 2005 6 liter, stock except for AFE filter and Zoodad mod. Does it make sense to do the EGR delete to a stock truck, or will it raise the EGT's too much?

It won't raise your EGT's, but you will throw codes and set off the check engine light without programming... Ask any dealer tech out there, its not warranty friendly to do to your truck, but it one of the best things you can do for your motor.
