straight piping or just flat out blocking the egr valve off will throw that code, i just ignore it for now... lol

We need a little more info on what you have done to your truck, just even specifics about your truck

EGR system is located on the passenger side top of the engine, near the firewall, you can delete the entire system (RIPMF666 can sell you a EGR delete kit), i have my EGR blocked off

EFI Live is the ultimate tuning device for the duramax, you can change almost any parameter dealing with the amount of fuel being injected, injection timing, boost levels.... and even egr function, www.efilive.com
EFI live is not for anyone who is inexperienced with computers, or diesel engines, there are vendors who will sell you the tuner with custom tunes to start you out

If you don't want to go with EFI Live, you can install a finger stick. Not sure who sells them though......
