Yes, you still need to upgrade because even with the EGR valve closed, hot exhaust still gets to the EGR cooler which can overheat and crack it.
Also if your oil cooler gets plugged up, then not enough coolant will circulate through the EGR cooler also making it very succeptable to cracking!
The factory EGR cooler is very thin and weak, so as long as it is still hooked up on your truck it is the "Weak Link" in your engine!!!
