All of Innovative tunes have the EGR shut off, I know that. It goes from 100% on to 95% off. I believe that is all they can do. However, since it is still in there, it can actually open up on occasion (not powered open, just blown open). Your EGR cooler will still be in place though. A full delete setup would be your best bet. As long as the EGR is still in place, it can still be coked up. A full delete will stop this as well since you will no longer have exhaust gases being blown into the intake. Some guys weld their EGR valves shut too.

If you're getting an SCT, don't even bother, just let the SCT do it's thing. Let us know how you like the bulletproof setup.

If you welded the "T" in the up-pipe this coking or opening of the EGR valve would be a mute point. As stated a full EGR delete will solve the same problems you just got to spend the money.

Buying the Bull#### Cooler and running just the SCT isn't going to solve anything. Your '06 has a small scoop that routes airflow directly into the EGR cooler. Since that is HOT exhaust it just heats up the whole cooler Bull#### or OEM since your EGR valve won't be functioning. Let that exhaust flow go to good use like spooling the turbo. Maybe you don't want increased turbo spooling but I tell you mine LOVES it.

If you get the BS cooler let the EGR valve operate normally. If you want the EGR valve operation restricted/non-operational mod the up-pipe and reap the rewards.

You can't block it off with the bulletproof cooler, that's the point. If you got the bulletproof cooler, then leave the rest of it alone. It's kind of silly having the bulletproof cooler only to run an SCT and have the EGR function turned off. You could always talk to your tuner and tell them to leave it on...

You need to use the stock up pipe with the scoop in it with the cooler, if you block it off, it defeats the purpose of having the cooler there....

While you are changing the EGR cooler you can put a 04(IIRC) up pipe on it which doesn't have a "scoop" in it. Thats what i did on mine. I'll look tonight and see if I can find the PN for the up pipe.

Locate the passenger side exhaust manifold. Follow it along and around the back of the motor/head. You will find it connects in to the EGR cooler and the Y-pipe that feeds the exhaust flow from both exhaust manifolds. When you remove this pipe the small "T" that connects to the EGR cooler is the part that gets welded shut. Make sure to leave some space at the top since there is a small lip that seats the EGR cooler to the up-pipe.

In the lower picture on this page item # 3 is the "T".

This page shows the two pipes (Y-pipe and EGR up-pipe) in bright red.
