High Idle setting and EBPV????

Tested out the High Idle setting on my new TS today.. after about 30 Seconds of running the EBPV kicked on.. Is it ok to leave the high idle on and run with the EBPV? I hate the sound of that thing and it makes me think my truck is falling apart Any helpful insight?

You guys don't like the sound? I like to hear it when I fire it up cold and it thinks its warming up.

Ok thanks. I just hate that sound. I find it very annoying. Is it very hard to disconnect the EBPV?

The plug for the EBPV is on the compressor housing, right under the intake.

What kramarj said.
Disconecting it will throw a soft code, meaning no CEL but a code will be stored. Not a huge issue, most trucks that have issues with EBPV opening/closing will be throwing this code anyways.
