There is an EGT sensor in one of the EGR pipes that you remove while deleting the EGR. Otherwise your option would be to buy an aftermarket probe, kit or buy a factory one. I had a new one laying around in case I lost one while pulling the camper. The sinister diesel brand EGR delete I bought came with a plate set up to take an aftermarket probe not the factory one. Most aftermarket probes will be 1/8NPT. The factory probe is metric 12X1.25mm. Plus the way the factory probe seals it requires something to seal against. So getting a plate with a 1/8 hole and drilling and tapping it out would not work.

I'm not sure though that deleting the EGR and leaving the DPF on would be a good idea. My mini maxx never specified what particular part of the emissions I had removed. It just asked if I'd taken them off. I would at least unplug the sensors on the DPF if you plan to leave it on. But it also may not make any difference.

Thanks. It seems I did read somewhere that the sensors in the exhaust must be unplugged. I hadn't considered that the EGR delete required DPF delete.

Reviving an old thread - sorry. Whats the best way to get the bolts out down on the manifold. Mine are not budging, and I feel like im either going to round them off or break them off...

Im halfway through all this crap and NOTHING came with instructions. I removed the throttle body on my intake and installed my programmer. Engine still threw a code. If I cant get these bolts out on the EGR can I drive it like that?

Most of the programmers I have heard about will let you leave the EGR installed. Just unplug the sensors. I personally would remove the EGR if I were you. But if you're pressed for time, save it for later.

To get the bolts out of the EGR tube that go into the exhaust manifold I soaked them down with PB Blaster and gently worked the bolts out then back in, back and forth like that, so as not to break the head off. It sucked but they came out. The bolts were stretched so I used new ones on the block off plate. Also I don't drive the truck everyday so I soaked all bolts with PB Blaster a few days ahead of time.

roger that.. I left the ERG alone and soaked the bolts. Worked on the CCV, and now just got the exhaust out. Im going to finish all of the rest then maybe get the engine hot a few times while soaking them and hopefully they break loose.. I have the SCT X4, but im new to that too.. so I havent figured out how to do all this...

Check out the "Read First - tuners, exhaust,...." thread ton of good info in there.

Really once the sensors are unplugged the EGR basically doesn't exist to the truck anymore so as far as the tuner goes it shouldn't matter.

I never fully understood the drawback of leaving the EGR on the engine but unplugged. Read something about frost plugs. Some other stuff about the coolant and exhaust that still enter it. Still I think the proper way is to remove it.

I did a lot of research before doing my delete and a lot of threads, and videos commented that those manifold bolts broke off and needed to be drilled and tapped. So if it comes to that you're not alone. I would do my best to prevent it as drilling the manifold will result in metal shavings which if not cleaned up will enter the Turbo. Probably the exhaust side of the Turbo would deal with it no issue. But best to not find out.

The sticky? I read it but there's a lot it doesn't say.. that's why I ended up calling no limit- but I ran into problems and they are closed today. It's my own fault. I'll probably just end up installing the new exhaust and the Venturi for the ccv, and wait till I can talk to them Monday.

Where are you going to vent your CCV? I thought about doing that delete too but there isn't as much info on benefit/drawbacks as there is on the EGR/DPF deletes.
