Yes most guys run the SCT with custom tunes with the EGR valve closed shut


That is not fool proof though...you should still plan for an actual EGR cooler delete as it still ruptures and still sends coolant into the cylinders even with the EGR valve closed.


I would put an exhuast on the truck but you dont need an intake until you get over 500hp....


(that is after injectors, turbo, fuel delivery, ect.)

Don't waste your money on an intake right now... You can do other things now that will benefit you more
