BAD EBPV?

I added this to another thread, and got no response, figured I'd just start a new thread...

I jumped in my truck last night, took off down the road, and it started surging. You could hear a difference in the exhaust, let off the fuel, or add more, it would make a whooshing sound and you could hear the turbo spool up...I unplugged the ebpv and it stopped. what could be causing this, a bad ebpv, bad sensor or what? Really wasent all that cold last night, 35F. This isnt the first time this has happened. It usually only happens for the first few minutes of driving, until the truck warms up.

yeah my truck did that also. Then once it warmed up it didnt do it anymore. Woundering if that warm up valve is really a good idea from ford.

I have a 1999 powerstroke, and i had the same problem, i just disconnected the electrical connector for the EBPV solenoid on the turbo pedestal, no longer have the problem, havent noticed any negative effects, even starting and warming up in single digit temps.

Does it stop oncewarmed up? Sounds like a normally operating ebpv. thats doing its thing until the truck gets warm.

Well, i drove the truck approx. 20 miles, and had good heat in the cab. I'd say the truck was warmed up. It has done it before, and then stopped within a few minutes.
