Removing ebpv

I have heard of taking the ebpv completely out, any pros or cons to this?
It would cut out all back pressure, but then again ive heard that we dont really need back pressure??

I unplugged mine too. I read an article on here somewhere about turning it into exhaust brake. thought that was kind of a cool idea.

I would suggest unplugging it before I removed it completely. Its a two wire connector, on the drivers side, just foward of and underneath the turbo. I unplugged mine because it was closing going down the road after the engine was warm.
The only con to this, is it takes longer for the engine to warm up...resulting in longer wait for cab heat.
From what I have read, the turbo creates enough backpressure...so no issues with that.
