Hey guys, I’m sure this has been discussed before but I can’t seem to find it. I have a 2003 6.0 with an egr delete, S&B CAI, and 5 inch turbo back exhaust. Just got new head gaskets, head studs, and updated oil cooler. I’m looking to buy a tuner now, I know the sct canned tunes don’t support deletes but my question is what will happen if I use the canned tunes. Will everything work fine or will it start throwing codes? I called a local store and asked what tuners they had in stock and I was told if I tried tuning a deleted truck with the tuners they have it would brick the computer, which I don’t believe.

You will have a CEL with an egr code, low flow im pretty sure. It will have no other impact except the CEL.

Update if anyone is curious, went and bought an sct gtx today, running the performance canned tune, I have no CEL and the truck is a whole new monster compared to stock tune.

I run an SCT. Never ran one of the canned tunes. When I tried it bricked my truck until I was able to get help from SCT. Just my opinion, get a custom tune from one of the reputable tuners. They know these trucks well and will write you a tune based on your mods and needs. And it's not too expensive either.

I'd advise getting a reputable tune from a tuner. The stock canned tunes are harsh.
