Ebpv question

Everything is in the world for a reason. But do you really need the ebpv or is there a delete or gutted i can do.

I posted yesterday about my turbo trying to keep producing back pressure, and 2 different ppl said it is the ebpv.

i want to get away with not putting a lot of money in it for a new one. everyone knows money is tight.

What can i do about the ebpv??

Yes it can be gutted, or you can just unplug it for now. There is a plug on the drivers side of the turbo, the wire comes under the intake tube and the plug is attached to the side of the turbo, unplug it and it won't turn on anymore. This will set a code but it will not turn on check engine light unless you have california emissions then it will

Or you can convert it to a DIY exhaust break.

is this the plug?

Does the connector have two wires? I've looked, and can only find 1 connector in the location that has been described, i just want to be sure. the connector is just under and foward of the turbo.

I have a 2000 CA emissions Excursion. I disconnected the EBPV and the CEL came on, as expected. Can I fool the computer somehow so the light stays off? Is a mechanical disconnect my only option for now? I'm not ready to do a full delete until maybe summertime... but that would still leave this light turned on...
