Question EGR block off is it really worth it?!

Guys when finishing my truck i just looked at my egr

Honestly i run the h&s HD300 "wild" tune(225hp)

Is it really worth it to take the egr coolers off?!

I kept mine to the fact i herd that it acted like a wastegate and kept my back pressure down

Tell me if its really worth in to do the delete

Or keep the egrs as a wastegate

Delete it. It doesn't act as a wastegate. They don't cycle on the high tunes anyhow. Plus I wouldn't want the crap put back thru my engine. It cakes the inside of your intake manifold. Get rid of it and be happy you are making your motor more healthy.

I don't really see the need to take them off when the tuning turns them off

Coolant is still flowing thru them. And if you don't at least block off the inlet from your exhaust heat is still being introduced to them. Hence a fail point and it raises the temp of your coolant. Tuning them off is a weak bandaid. Block off plates are better and in my opinion are minimum because coolant still flows thru, but completely removing them removes the fail point entirely!

I've read/heard it all before. I just don't see the need.

Coolant is still flowing through them. Exhaust gas isn't. There's less heat going through them with the EGR turned off than there is with the EGR functioning.

You do what you want. But without the inlet being blocked, hot exhaust is still entering even tho it isn't flowing thru.
