Only one I know of is either the TS 5x or the SCT that shuts the EGR vavle off. Course you will proably have to have it pulled and cleaned or replaced. Then when you shut it off there will be no probs.

1997 Dodge 2500 CUMMINS 5 spd 4x4, 16* timing, #10 plate, pump mods that make it go real hard, 3gsk, South Bend Con FE, studded and o-ringed, AEM Workhorse intake, Straight 4 inch exhaust into 6" Aussie tip Black powder coated stacks, modified turbo non wastegated now and the two big cowbells are now residing on my Goat. Smokes like a freight train and "Hey I got a goat finally!!!!!"

Now my wife's:2006 F-150 Crewcab XLT 4.6L V8 with every option available.

More than likely your exhaust is causing the code. Just install an SCT and you will be fine, as long as you request to have the EGR disabled.
