If I wanted to do an EGR delete, would the Offroad Tuning be the option to select for an ecu tune?

How does Offroad Tuning affect DPF and DEF function though? Will I even know if those systems are having problems if the ecu has been redesigned to disable codes relating to the exhaust aftertreatment system?

No need for the off-road option for egr delete. The base tune takes care of the egr. If you opt for the off-road option, then a straight pipe exhaust system will be required to replace the factory exhaust.

For whatever reason, my first EGR failed and I believe it started leaking coolant into my intake/engine, etc. Ram replaced it, but as many know, EGR's have been on back order and it was a pain. I understand that your tunes "turn off" the EGR, which is great. However, I'm looking to do an EGR delete so that there is no possibility of anything remotely close to this happening again.
I've seen two types of EGR delete kits. The first type has the two block off plates, which I believe remove the tube. Yet, the rest of the EGR module remains there. The second type removes the EGR entirely and I think it has a hose to re-route the coolant line. Does your tune work for both types? Or does the EGR module still have to be present?
Thanks
