That leaves the possibility that it could still leak oil. Plus you would probably have to remove the turbo to remove the flap, not sure but I am guessing. Might as well do it all at once and be done with it.

You can unhook the actuator rod and electrically disconnect the solenoid (but as mentioned it could leak where the rod exits the actuator cylinder). The EBPV housing can be removed from the turbo without removing the turbo. You can then grind off the butterfly screws, remove the butterfly and shaft. Tap the open shaft hole for an NPT plug (better than a freeze plug that can pop out). Of course a modified (or non-EBPV) pedestal makes getting the turbo off much easier. Cheers!

I just unplugged mine. Works fine for now. It's one of those things, mine's never had any problems, other people have them leak like crazy... I'm just waiting until I pull the turbo to do up-pipes, do them both at the same time.

I just got a non EBPV pedestal for my OBS turbo.

Once the pedestal is replaced, is there anything else I have to do to deactivate the system?

No, there is not EBPV actuating assembly. However, you still have your EBPSensor, which is good
