straight piped now ebpv problems

I just recently removed the cat and muffler and welded in straight pipe. now the ebpv is acting wierd, as I'm driving right after start up it'll close and open randomly and rob all power. is this because it is just cold out, 30* or so, and it's just trying to warm the motor up faster? It didn't do this before.

It did it before, you just didn't notice it as easy because of the cat and muffler. Just unhook the EBPV or let it warm up a little before taking off.

will it hurt anything by unplugging the connector? is the only purpose to heat the motor up quicker.

Some don't even notice longer warm up times with it unplugged.

Tony, curious as to how you like the cat/muffler removal. Significant change in sound or power? I am considering the same. Thanks!

it sounds really good. not that loud unless you really get into it but nice and deep with the whistle. all I did was weld pipe in the stock exhaust in place of the cat and muffler. it only cost 25 bucks from summit racing. since the factory exhaust is already 3.5" and not replacing the downpipe, i couldnt see spending 400+ for another .5". it defiantly freed up some power. as for the ebpv I just disconnected the connector, warms up the same.
