Stuck EBPV???

Had the truck pluged in all night, it was raining and snowing...start her up, runs fine at idle..pull out and the truck runs really rough and hard...I figured some cylinders weren't firing so i shut it down and restarted on the road. It ran afer that, think its possible that the EBPV got stuck closed?

If it got stuck like mine did, it wont make any boost. Mine would only go to about 5psi at wot.

I think mine stays closed way to long. It wont boost at all and you hear no turbo sound, and lots of smoke. I unplugged mine but it didnt change anything. After about a mile of driving (no matter how long I let it idle and warm up) it runs great.

I disconnected mine, took the rod off and put a spring on it to keep it open, no more problems.
