You can get an SCT with custom tunes and have your tuner remove the EGR from the programming. What I did (and what you might do) is block off the EGR cooler. For an 03-04, you can put a freeze plug in the intake side of the EGR cooler or for an 05-07 truck, you can buy a sneaky pipe from Elite diesel.

I don't mean to but I have a question along the same lines. If I install a sneaky pipe (to use my SCT), will I need to reinstall the stock pipe to prevent codes when "stock" and returning to the dealer?

Bush_Master, I think the answer is no, but we'll need a tech to chime in to be sure. In the latest reflash, I believe they remove the Exhaust Back Pressure reading, which is what I think was used to determine the EGR wasn't functioning properly.

Melmount, Its an up-pipe with the scoop removed and it will include a block off plate to prevent exhaust gas from entering the EGR cooler. The 03's and 04's didn't have a scoop in the up-pipe, but the 05's - 07's did. (Some 05's are actually 04 builds so may not have a scoop). LINK
