I was looking for tunes for my deleted 05 6.0 f350, and I can only find site the saw the EPA crackdown and altered everything.
I've got an x4 non updated so I've got the street canned tune going mainly to kill the cel that WILL come up, I know I'm not alone.
Question time, let's say I got a tune from a company, for arguments sake, Gearhead, since their site says not to run without a functioning Egr, what would happen if I did run it? (And pretend I was able to ignore the cel light that I'm sure will come on)
Really just curious if I'll destroy something since it's deleted 🤷‍♀️

Don't update your tuner. You lose the EGR delete option. I updated mine and now can't delete, so CEL stays on all the time, with motor running a little rough time to time. As I've been told, nothing bad will happen. However, trying to find a way to get a custom tune with the EGR delete option again.

I was able to purchase a SCT GTX tuner used for my recently purchased 2006 F350. It has the EGR delete. The tuner was locked but I was able to get SCT to unlock it for me. Is it worthless though since I have the EGR delete and this tuner has been fully updated?

Did you ever figure this out? I purchased an SCT x4 without knowing tat the EGR delete option had been removed. I need to find another tuner now...

If you haven't updated your X4 it may be OK. Just don't let it do any updates.

I did not figure anything out for mine. I was just told that some people get the light on the instrument cluster and some don't. Hopefully I can tune mine and will be lucky enough not to get the light. I know I have the EGR delete now and there is no light/code. I haven't tried tuning mine yet because I have way too much other crap to fix first before I even bother trying.
