I haven't tried using a non-EGR ECU with EGR still installed. I would imagine it would be problematic since there is still a tube leading air out of the exhaust manifold and usually the EGR valve is what goes bad when it freezes either open or closed. If yours is frozen open, I can imagine it giving problems to air/fuel balance and idle if left in even with a non-EGR ECU. It's not hard to remove tho. I would suggest just taking the whole system out even if you stick with the EGR ECU like RogerD said. It will blow a check engine light, but still runs great.

Roger, I've never heard of retrofitting a EGR ECU. I would love to hear how to do that tho, since I have like 5 spares now that no one seems to want.
