ebpv??

I was just reading the write up about the electric fuel pump mod. Now this guy removed his ebpv completely. This might be a knob question but why and dont you need that????

The truck will run fine without an EBPV. Basically you remove the valve and weld over where it was. Alot of people have issues with their EBPV leaking oil, and use this fix rather than replacing it. The only downside is the truck will warm up slower, as the only function of the EBPV is to increase exhaust back pressure keeping warm air in the engine longer.

Yeah, that one is up to you. All you gain by removing it is the possibility of an oil leak. From what I've heard, its effect on warm up time is pretty minimal. Guys have run EBPV delete down to -20 (thats the highest I've heard, not to say its the limit) without any ill effects.
Deleting it does cost you the ability to run an engine brake too.

There is still no need for it. On my dad's work truck the EBPV closes all of the time and it still doesn't make a difference in warm up time, it's more annoying than anything.

removed mine 3 years ago with no problems so far. Mine would close while I was running dow the interstate at 75/80 mph.... that gets pretty dangerous. My warm up time wasnt affected enough to really notice.

definitely doesn't change the warmup time at all. I still have mine but only is controlled by my switch on the gear shift so it can't turn on when I don't want it
