EBPV question

im thinking about deleting it. what im wondering is if it is actually that effective on cold mornings, i live in northern colorado and it does get pretty cold, im wondering if its really necessary to heat the motor up. i hate the sound, i hate the way it practically fights the truck even when its almost warm, i hate what it does to my fuel mileage in the morning. i always let it warm up at least 10 minutes, what do you guys think?

Make it a jake! It works ungodly well. Favorite mod I've done to the truck and one of the easiest

when you fill your wish list and your chip has an option to use it as an exhaust brake you will miss it sorely

visa versa

alot of dodge owners install exhaust brakes and have 3cyl. idle tunes to enhance cold weather warm up

keep it, you have a gift but just dont realize it yet

You can always unplug it so it doesn't come on in the morning

Yeah you would but If you get loads behind you often you'll love it. I use my jake up to almost every stop sign or hard slow down

800-1000 bucks for a jake? Try 2-3 grand for a jake.

The ebpv is HIGHLY recommended on your truck, especially you living where it gets cold. It helps out a ton, and is a very nice exhaust brake.

I lived in a cold climate for 7 years, never missed it once. I usually unplugged it on my 7.3's, but on the last one I gutted it. I would do it again for sure. No more loud warm ups, no more annoying EBPV. Gut it.
