Ive read that there are 2 main functions.... to cool the EGR as it is recirculating hot exhaust gasses (so theoretically the coolant is cooler than these gasses and therefore remove heat) and yeah, to stop the TB from freezing over on those cold winter mornings in detroit.

Ppl usually blank them out when disbaling the EGR.
