Re: SCT x4 Firmware Update - No EGR option!

I was wondering if anyone found any tunes that will turn off the EGR and make it run nice with the delete installed? I just had an EGR delete kit installed and bought the SCT x4 not realizing it is no longer an option to tune it to run without the EGR. I'm hoping someone knows where I can find that tune, everything else on my truck is stock. The truck runs slightly off occasionally as (I assume) the computer is trying to adjust for the non existent EGR. Really hoping someone knows of a tune that will help with that, I don't care if I need to leave the valve plugged in, just want the truck to run nice.

Turd-250 I figured I would try to answer your question about the EGR soft codes. I have a 2005 with a manufacturing date of 09/04...It takes the early model turbo and has other early model features, like not having a CEL on when the EGR valve is unplugged. I did check at it does show 2 soft codes when the valve is unplugged, but if you plug the valve in the soft codes go away. Unfortunately, even with the valve plugged in it does have some occasional odd running issues due to the computer trying to adjust to the non existent EGR. If you are curious about anything else the early engines do in relation to the EGR delete and codes, let me know.
