Are unplugging and delteing the EGR that different?

I have a 6.7L ive had deleted for about a month. My buddy got his done the same time.

We both didnt worry aboutthe EGR cooler, we just unplugged it.

He just deleted his today and the guy that did it for him says it is a night and day difference. Is this true?

Really want to know.

2013 F250 Platinum!

5 Inch MBRP Straight Pipe
S&B Intake
EGR Delete

Not true. You won't notice any difference other than a lighter wallet and a more difficult return to stock when you trade the truck in

Agreed, don't see how it would make any difference whether its just turned off or actually removed.

THe main reason is not allowing the oily tarry residue from building up into your intake and gunking it up. Thats why the EGR gets removed.

No. Either way, the EGR isn't running so it doesn't matter.
