Non ebp pedestal?

Ive been thinkin about buying this new different pedestal bit i dont know or cant kind what benefits it will have. or the cons it could have also. its cold where i am and i know that valve is to aid in warmup but sometimes its closed to the point that i have that hiss noise all the way to work. (20 min drive) and my fuel mileage has gotten worse. is it best to buy the different pedestal or should i rebuild that valve?

cheapest way to do it is just make sure the valve is open and unplug it. or you could put it on a switch so you can control when its on. How cold is it there? do you plug the truck in at night?

your options for removing the EBPV are the blank pedestal or removing the valve and plugging the hole. its probly 1-2 hours of work max to get the old valve out and plug the hole

Yup either do that or get a blank one, costs more but is mistake free, and while you are at it gut the butterfly and shaft out also, will drop your EGT's buy 50-75*

That's what Bob has it for.
Acutally, you were probably looking at his. He's good.

Not every mod out there is for a perfomance gain. This will prevent the almighty oil leak from under the turbo from happening.
