the egr/cooler delete on my 2011 gave me an extra 3 mpg.

The way I was told is that the egr works for an engine, is just like if a human was to live by inhaling his own farts, can't be good.

I'm sure that $15 will get you a blocker plate but realize that your Service Engine Soon light will come on until you delete EGR out of your programming via EFILive.

This stops putting soot from exhaust in through Turbo and into engine. These are bad for engine and can cause premature wear from Foriegn Materials into the clean engine. Also a second item to perform is the PCV vent mod also helps keep engine cleaner.

In theory you should get more power. Your cylinders are filling with 100% combustables, right? no inert gasses.
