ebpv

hey all,
I thaught I read somewhere that i can just get rid of my ebpv. If so how does one go about doing it and does it have any detrimental side effects? mine is acting up, sounds like it sticking or something and not sure if its some sort of sensor or just sticking. Someday I want to replace the turbo entirely so i dont want to drop money into fixing it if i can just delete it. thanks
oh its a 95 7.3 f350 with a auto and i have already installed a 3" downpipe.

You have to remove the turbo to gut the ebpv. I think you may be able to unplug it and it should stick open (althought sometimes can stick closed) and it would be fine (might throw a soft code I think)

only detriment will be longer warm up while driving as it closes while the engine is cold to force the engine to warm up..

but if your truck is warm when you go to drive, it will not ever activate

It's not closed when you drive anyway, as soon as you hit the brake pedal if it is activated, it opens back up.

I would remove mine...but I don't really don't feel like taking the turbo off unless I am replacing it..

it is too closed -- how do you think it causes back pressure -- every heard your truck sound like a huge plane taking off when its cold??

that is the valve closing off the exhaust path to make the truck work harder, therefore causing it to warm up quicker and also hurt fuel mileage.

the only way to assure it won't activate is to let the truck warm up or remove it.

I've unplugged mine and put plugged connectors on both sides of the wiring to keep the original connectors from corroding. I did this because the truck seemed to take almost all the way to work (13miles) to heat up enough to leave it fully open. I've had not problems with this set up.

Brant...my valve closes while idling, but as soon as I step on the brake to put it in gear the valve opens back up.

Alright, got the definitive answer... will copy paste here

the ebp closes off only under certain temp say freezing temp, if you touch the brake it opens and if you wide open throttle it opens , but temporarily , if you let off the brake and the pcm still says the engine is still to cold it will shut it back off
and it can stay closed driving as long as you arent under heavy accell, so you both are right to an extent, the entire thing is controlled by engine oil temp reading to the pcm
