Where does this plug go??

I reconnected to ebpv plug and got it going again, but my mileage tanked. I found this plug but cannot see where it goes? Any help appreciated. I enjoy using the valve as an exhaust brake, but do not enjoy the 5 mpg drop sense I got i started using the ebpv again.

looks like the EBPV plug. on the back side of the turbo pedestal on the drivers side, there should be a wire that follows along the top of the driver side head towards the front of the motor.

The female side of that plug should be attached to the bolt that is right under your intake tube.

I unplugged my ebpv valve because my mileage tanked with it hooked up and I noticed an exhaust leak right after I started using it again. It could be unrelated but I am just not happy with it. There was a bunch of soot near my drivers side exhaust manifold.

yep, you probably need to crawl underneath and tighten up the exhaust manifold bolts....they work loose....

also, there is probably a very good reason the PO had that thing unhooked....something didn't work, and he didn't wanna fix it....and it's most likely the EBP Sensor, located on top of the tube on the right - front of you engine.....

here's what I did :

order a "Dongle" from : Untitled Document

here's the exact page....

when you get it, unplug the sensor on the front, plug the Dongle in and forget the EBP sensor permanently. then you can wire the valve to use as an exhaust brake.

Or you can wire the valve straight to a switch, and if the EBP tube is clogged, replace it. They're only like $30 new for the tube, can get em at any parts store. Or you can tie it into the MAP line for maybe $5 in fittings, which is what i did. No more dirty sensor/tube to mess with. But it'll be going back to the manifold on the new engine so i can monitor back pressure.

I am just bypassing it at the moment (unplugged the ebp plug and have a jumper in it, and then wired the valve open. I figured i'll just plug it in when i tow something (takes like a minute) and I rarely tow at the moment. I will look into bypassing the warmup setting in the morning so i can control it just for an exhaust brake. The PO had it wired to the accelerator so when you let off it kicks on. and a switch. Pretty neat, but i just got sick of having to warm up the truck for 15+ minutes before I drove it.

What do you mean its already plugged in? The plug in your hand is the factory EBPV plug. Do yo have any pics of the plug that is plugged in?

The wire below the intake tune....you can see it going to the ebpv. I will have to take a picture of it tomorrow. hmmm. Maybe when the po wired up the exhaust brake they rewired the ebpv??? Becuase how it is plugged it, the valve opens in the morning like normal and works as a brake. (i just today disconnected it all because the morning valve drove me nuts). but that plug i have no idea where it is from.
