Just a quick question .....

Which way is the linkage supposed to be for the ebpv to be open?

The linkage is connected th the tang on the bottom of the turbo, and so with the tang pulled in it sweeps towards the fire wall but then springs back out away from the firewall.
Which is open and which is closed ?
Thanks

Start ur truck when its cold. Then watch as it warms up. Unless yours is stuck.

Well that's just it.

I've been chasing a sluggish performance/ bad gas mileage gremlin and it was all the way with the tang away from the firewall .

So I searched alot for solutions and most results pointed at a stuck or partially stuck ebpv.

So I sired it open as to pics on the Internet from this site and others. I think it is open now but I'm not sure. The trucks manners are almost identical from before I did it.

I initially unplugged the connector to the ebpv actuator with no change. I just want to verify which position is open and which is closed. Searches for diagrams were unsuccessful .

Btw. Hucorey, how do you like your cat back kit in terms of ease of install..?
And how do you like your bilsteins? Thanks

Did you watch it as the truck came up to operating temp?

Since its summer you may not see any movement. Ambient temps may be warm enough for the pcm to keep it open. So, unhook the rod at the tang and move the tang. It should move very easy.

I hate my Bilstein HD's. They are cheap. I really want the Carli 4.5" kit with 2.5" custom Kings w/reservoirs but just not ready to swing $2600. . So I jumped on the group buy from Raul @ Stealth for the Bilstein 5100's to get me by for a year or two.

I have a turbo back exhaust. It wasn't that bad. A sawzall with metal blade gets the old system out in about 10 minutes. :thumbup:

Yea, I read the ambient temp needs to be in the 30s or something . I have not watched nor have I applied 12v to it to see what happens.

I'm in south Texas so temps are not a problem. I don't need it to do its job. It's a silly trade off keeping it only to run the risk of it getting stuck and hampering performance. I'll try hooking up everything again and run 12v to it to see what happens . Thanks !

I was looking at the mbrp cat back and I read that it goes from 3" at the turbo and increases diameter as it runs down the firewall until it reaches 4-5". Pretty cool approach, IMO.

And I need shocks soon. I was looking at the rsk kit that comes with bilsteins..... But maybe not now. Thanks for the feedback !

I'm in NW Ohio and winters can get pretty brutal. Not like it used though. I have my turbo flange gutted and the pedestal. So much better air flow. That dang butterfly in there probably takes up 20% air space even when fully open. So that's why I took it out. I always make sure I don't start driving in the colder months until the temp gauge just starts to come off the L.
Fwiw I didn't see any difference in warm up time when it was in either.

BTW if you really need some shocks you oughta jump in the group buy for the 5100's that Stealth has until tomorrow. It is a good deal. Unless the OBS is a bit different. Of course you can send him a PM tonight and still get the price for yours.

Dang! I'd love to, but cash flow and timing are off. I gotta do the lift first.

Thanks for the input. I read a lot of what you just stated about the warm up times with a ebpv and with without a ebpv being negligible . That's why I want it gone or wired open. I don't think I'll EVER need it in south Texas . We see below 30 degrees about 2–3 times a year.

When you knock out the bushings to gut it, a 1/2 NPT pipe tap is perfect size already. No need to drill it out bigger. Just get a couple of female Allen style pipe plugs. They work perfect.

I won't be pulling my turbo off any time soon. I'll just have to deal with it
