You could always remove the EGR and then get a tune to remove it's purpose all together so you don't get at check engine light to come on. Or you could just leave it on there and have a bung welded onto the header itself. Exhaust shops could do it for about $15-$20 easily. They may even have the bungs in stock in some cases.

But a tune is worth it.

Yes, a tune is well worth the money. It helps optimize what you have done to the car and it livens up your car a lot. Anyways if you are going with the SVT header it would be advisable to get a tune anyways or you take a chance at leaning out the engine at wide open throttle.
