Is there a good redneck engineering way to delete that without buying the delete pedestal?

Check the oil pan over real good, they can develop a rust issue. If it were me while its out i would replace the oil pan with a new one. Potential rust issue solved!!!

Rockauto has it for $95, part number is FP20B

Ended up buying new to me manifolds(ebay is my friend). Old ones had up pipe bolt ears rusted off. Replaced one up pipe and all exhaust gaskets and bolts. Deleted ebpv with custom redneck engineering. Replaced fuel pump on top of block and the fuel line seals on back 2 lines. Oil cooler was replaced not long ago with new mounts front and back, so left that. Dipstick broke off in pan mount when I looked at it. So pulled oil pan painted and replaced the mount and dipstick. Painted all exhaust stuff with high heat ceramic paint. FYI when curing that paint don't put them in your kitchen oven. I'm really curious to see how long paints stays on there. Didn't feel like spending money on new valve cover gaskets, so a tube of the right stuff came into play. Then had to replace 1 pigtail on each valve cover.
