I don't remember where I read it (maybe here?), but in a diesel increasing EGR only works up to a certain point - first it reduces NOx without compromising performance, but then everything starts to fall apart.

I believe this is what the OP is attempting to do: cut EGR while emulating sensor readings for the ECU's sake to make it think everything is OK. I wonder what the effect will be? Since the ECU will think that the intake air is partially emissions, the fuel dosage/timing will be changed accordingly, compared to an intake charge of clean air.

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
