excellent thanks for the response!! call me simple...but what exactly do i need to do to "wire" it open?? do i have to take anything apart??
Undo the V-Clamp holding the down pipe to the turbine outlet and separate them to look inside. On top of the outlet there is what looks like a brass freeze plug. Directly opposite, under the outlet, is the actuator rod from the pedestal to the butterfly vale in the exhaust. remove the rod by pulling straight down. Look inside the outlet and rotate the "arm" under the outlet till the EBPV until it is completely open. wire the "arm" to the pedestal in this position. Reinstall the down pipe. wire up the rod so that it is straight out of the pedestal like it was still connected to the "arm". The rod has a wiper seal at the pedestal that you don't want to provide a side load on or it will leak oil.
if that "sorts" the problem out...how big of a job (and how much $$) is it to "delete" the valve all together
If you have a torch just cut out the butterfly inside the outlet tube (remove it first from the turbo). Pull out the upper and lower pieces of the shaft that held the butterfly. Tap the holes that the shaft came out of. Insert plugs into the tapped holes to seal. You will still need to gut and seal the pedestal so that future leaks from here don't happen. you can do this yourself with some epoxy or you can buy a EBPV delete pedestal ($200)
