Egr deleted? How to tell

Ok so my EGR went bad while out of town, my brother took the truck to a shop where they " installed" an egr delete kit, my question is how do I tell they really did it? Anyone has pics of how's it's supposed to look or what I shoul look for? This guy charged my brother $1500 which I now am on the hook for. The only reason I ask is because I read that the egr delete on an 05 would trigger the check engine light and mine has not done so. TIA. he also changed the oil cooler btw...

From what I have read on here, it will only throw a code if the actual EGR valve was removed. The valve is installed right in front of the oil and fuel filter on top of the engine. It will be about 2" in diameter and should have a wire plug going into the top of it. The price for the EGR delete and the oil cooler change sounds about right. Only way you can tell I guess is by looking for the EGR cooler just under the passenger side of the intake and they should have changed out the up pipe on that side as well at the back of the eng. Do a search on here for EGR delete and you will see lots of pics.

Does the recipt for the work have a brand name for the EGR delete kit?

Who's delete did they use? They may have left the EGR valve plugged in and left it sitting in the valley, knowing that if it where removed completely, you'll see a CEL

Just plug it back in and you won't have to deal with a CEL from the EGR

Not exactly true.

I have a self installed EGR delete and left the EGR valve in the intake and plugged in.
For the first few weeks I did not get the "P0401-insufficient EGR flow detected" code. Then I got it, cleared it, got it back 2 weeks later. Then 1 week later, now its at the stage that its twice a week and rather annoying.

To the OP: Like me, you may not get the code for weeks afterwards, but as time goes on it could become more frequent.
The early 05 trucks seem to be more of a crapshoot whether or not you will see the code. The later 05 and up trucks will throw the code. Only way around that is getting a tuner and a custom tune

I stand corrected, thank you. That does make sense because it will not be sensing any flow at all. Should have thought more about that. I just thought I had read somewhere that if you leave it in that you will not get the code.
