Anybody able to help out a little more? thanks.

Just a guess, but i'm assuming since the tuner can turn off the second 02 sensor and remove it...the same can be done for the dpfe sensor

OK, I removed the EGR pipe including the two lines coming off of it. I still have the EGR valve and the dpfe sensor (what's mounted on the firewall....I'm assuming that's the dpfe sensor?). Do I need to remove either of those two items?

I would leave the DPFE sensor mounted just in case you ever decide to go back to stock. It really doesn't get in the way of anything anyways.

Ok, yeah I figured on leaving it there, but I wasn't sure. Do I still need to remove the EGR valve? Do I need to plug the two lines coming off the dpfe?

The valve and hardlines should all come off as one unit, then you need to throw a blockoff plate on the engine and cap off the vac lines for the DPFE sensor.

yea take out the egr and pipe, make a blockoff plate, and plug the dpfe lines and the vacuum line coming from the solenoid which attached to the top of the egr valve below it.
