EGR delete??

I have read about programmers that have egr delete. What exactly is that, can the programmer shut it down leaving no future worries? For the record, mine was just replaced under warranty.

yes there are programmers that have the egr shut off option , but from my experience the possibility of egr problems is still there, in my opinion shutting the egr off manually only allows more heat to build up in egr cooler because the pcm is not able to allow it to open and release exhaust gasses into the intake , ive seen several with egr problems with this setup, , in my opinion doing the egr delete in the exhaust is the way to go , and have had good responses from customers with that done

Is it much of a job performing the delete in the exhaust?

Yeah, when Marc did mine, he cut my old up-pipe off... It's real easy with an 03 and 04 model because they don't have an inner scoop in the up-pipe like the 05-07's do. Pull off the passenger side tire, remove your exhaust down pipe, and loosen your up-pipe and slip the block off plate in the neck next to your EGR cooler and put her back together.

I say that like I've done it, but Marc's the man!!! He's probably still enjoying my Crown Royal...

Thanks guys. No rusted bolts here, I bought the truck in Florida and drove her north. She's spotless.
I wish I knew about this while I had the downpipe off when I installed my exhaust......Oh well. Looks like another thing to do this weekend. Oh yeah, does someone offer some sort of a block off plate?
