Dude, you are beating a dead horse. There are hundreds of threads here with that exact topic. I don't mean to be rude, but seriously. Come one.

Now to answer your question.
1. Better fuel mileage
2. Longer engine life
3. Everything

how do you like the stage II DPF, did It help MPG ? Do you Tow with your truck?
I have seen all the threads but none say what the EGR Delete does. Thanks again

The 'claim' is that the EGR delete will improve your mileage, lower your intake temps, allow your engine to run cleaner (extending your oil changes) which in turn extends the longevity of your engine. You cannot do it unless you do a DPF delete as it is required to make your DPF function correctly.

I have not removed mine, but have experimented with unplugging it, and I dont see any major mileage gain. It does nothing for power...

doing EGR and DPF alone gains NOTHING for power. will however keep things cleaner ie. oil, turob (wont have to take it into the dealer for cleanings), no REGEN ect... if you want gains, you must have some sort of tuning such as Edge with attitude or bullydog PMT ect...

I love the Stage II delete. The best $650 I have ever spent. Sound, smoke, and the 3 MPG I gained. I do tow, but I have not towed since I have had it on.

Before the delete my exhaust brake was cutting in and out due to the carbon buildup from the DPF. After the delete I have not had a single problem with it. Before the delete the EB would shut off at about 1400 rpm, now it goes all the way down to idle.

Default H&S

my H&S box being installed. Does the EGR disable function on this box do the same thing as physical removal?

buy a smarty buy 04.5-07 exhaust and egr & cooler delete and be done with it all i had edge and was far from impressed besides having gauges and change on the fly your not getting a full increase of all the affects by un plugging cause its still going to be slightly flowing and plugging your dpf sense its still in place just delete the poor truck
