I can unplug 3 plugs from EGR, remove DPF, keep CAT and get EFI live tuner and I'll be good to go? I need to do it over a weekend, is it possible?
You can but it may create one of two problems in the future:
1. the EGR valve could still open with enough pressure and it still put all that soot into yrou engine (The reason to shut off the EGR in the first place will be defeated). A simple cheap blocker plate will prevent this
2. The EGR Cooler can leak and that will put coolant into your cylinders. NOT good. Sinister makes a good delete kit for around 250 or so.
IMO, best choice, remove EGR system (in addition to DPF) Tune to prevent Limp Mode.
KEEP the parts Just in case...... Should you ever have to put them back it would be VERY expensive to have to buy them again
