Question Dummy EGR?

Does anyone make a dummy EGR valve, one you can plug in, not operate and not throw a code?? Maybe its invention time!!

Most of us leave the egr valve in place and plugged in for proper cooling fan operation.

Probably only looking at commanded EGR and not EGR error which would show -100% even though the commanded opening would for example be 28%

Is this what you're looking for? I run with one, and leave the actual EGR valve plugged in and bolted to one of the intake elbow bolts.

Yes, so EGR is still plugged in, but sitting on outside of motor still functional?? I knew someone would come up with this. Good price too. Thanks

So you're going to just plug the hole for the valve? You're going to not address the actual problem which is the EGR cooler itself, or delete any of the components that have exhaust gas flowing through them, and instead shove the plug in the hole and leave the valve sitting out in the engine bay?

If you don't have inspections, why not just spend $40 more delete with a kit, or even less $ to weld up the cooler that's already in there, then you don't need the plug because there's no gas flow.

If you do have inspection, you're going to be pulling the plug to reinstall the valve annually anyways, why not weld the cooler and leave the valve in place?

Any way you cut it, you'll need a programmer that can kill the CEL or you'll have to buy a PCM flash from someone because simply removing the valve won't stop if from setting a P0401 insufficient EGR flow code.
