cadalac converter

K ive searched and havent got a solid answer! If i remove this and plug the EGR will it give me more power? I understand it is illegal but most are saying yes you will get more and the guys at the muffler shop say no it will mess up all your fuel balance and ****?
Whats all of your imputs on this? How much if any power will i get outa this? or is it better to just go for an exhaust?
(ive already got a power programmer and cai keep in mind)

The EGR works only at part throttle and is turned off at WOT. So, you would gain nothing by defeating it.
