one more question, what about the butterfly valve on the turbine housing side, does the valve stay closed or open on its own? and what about the ebpv terminator that pure diesel power sells, is it needed to keep the valve open?

If you going to gut it then it will be gone otherwise you can unplug it and it will stay open all the time. The terminator just stops a soft code to be stored in the pcm and it keeps all the gunk out of the plug. Its not needed you can always just fill the plug with die electric grease.

Not to steal your thread, but what are the benefits of gutting it? (Other than if it gets stuck closed)

Personally, I liked the idea of converting it to an exhaust brake. Anyone that has done this have any input?

Probobly the best reason to get rid of it now days is the price of diesel fuel. I got rid of mine because it was sticking and I couldn't stand the hissing noise it made anyway, so I figured if I going to pull the turbo to clean it I might as well fix it so I don't have to do it again and get rid of it. You can use it as a brake, but its not efficient below 2000 rpms.

My video is kinda misleading now that I've seen it linked to some questions.

My video documents the gutting and plugging of the turbo PEDISTAL... not the valve on the exhaust side of the turbo.

You can just wire the valve open or you can knock the rivets off, cut the valve, pull it out, tap the holes, plug them and voila - no more pedistal rod to leak, and no more valve to hamper flow!
