You will need to spend money on a smarty if u don't want codes but
I got +3mpg around town, longer engine life due to lack of crud, cleaner oil
and -100F at idle, up to 300F less just driving around. Takes 10 minutes with
the smarty. While you're at it, do the dpf delete. -300F and +4mpg for me.
Took about 2 hours. Yeah, it was very much worth it to remove the legislated
crap from my truck!!!!

If I just unplug it will this fit the same purpose of deleting it???? Wont my edge clear the CEL on startup? I think I heard u have to remove the butterfly also if you unplug it?

DO NOT clear the EGR code if you do not have the DPF deleted. Your truck will throw a lightning bolt & codes as well as run rough, DURING REGENs. I can be cleared manually after. Just a real PITA during the regen. I know from experience.
Tips:
EGR can be unplugged with CEL anytime
DPF can be deleted with or without the EGR unplugged/blocked (no codes with sims)
Code clearing only works well for EGR code WITH DPF deleted. :thumbsup:

we got us a convert! :)
Before u get started down this path, slow down and think
about your long term goals!!! Whatever u do, you really
don't want to spend money two or three times when
your plan changes. First it was EGR delete, then DPF, then
HP adds, etc. Sit down, write out your goals and research
your options. If I had realized where I was going I would
have started with the Smarty instead of the Hypertech, etc
and saved a ton of money by not doing rework.

If you're burning up resistors, they are either wired up incorrectly or are too low of a wattage. If they are hooked up wrong u are putting the box they are hooked up to at risk! Between replacement parts availability and $$$ watch out! Can anyone who has done the homebrew resistors give him some tips?

Sounds to me like you are putting the resistors in the wrong place. 1/4 watt resistors can easily handle the voltage levels of those signal lines. I used them for a long time before getting real sims. Look in the DIY link in my signature for pics and an abundance of great info on the delete.
