EGR Help Needed Raleigh-ish

My truck kicked up an EGR code a few times last weekend. EGT's went up a little and fuel mileage plummeted. My coolant is flushed and spotless. My ECT's and EOT's look perfect. Delta runs 8-10 and doesn't really change much even towing. Question is, should I delete the EGR or clean/replace it?

That's the plan right now. Might go look at an Ecoboost this weekend. If I don't trade, the EGR crap will be gone soon. Anybody up for helping?
