Wicked Wheel 2 install and ebpv delete

I will be pulling my turbo this weekend to install my turbo rebuild kit and ww2 and had some questions about the ebpv. I want to delete it but do i need to buy the delete pedestal or can it be done without? I am a novice welder but i have a buddy who tigs for a living.

You do not need a deleted pedestal. Honestly all I did was install a new oring in the actuator port washer and epoxied a pipe plug into the hole where the actuator rod comes out of. The extension port (where the EBPV butterfly is located) I pulled of, completely gutted, and capped the upper and lower ports that support the butterfly pivot shaft with freeze plugs and drilled holes above the plugs edge and inserted cotter pins to keep the exhaust pressure from pushing out the plugs. No leaks, no mess, no problem.

Hi Matt, you wouldn't happen to have any pics of that work would you? I got a downpipe on order and would like to do what you did or just wire it open while I got the downpipe off. I already pulled the plug on the EBPV. I just don't have the experience to follow along with what you are saying. All I know is that an o-ring or something back there can develop a bad leak.

Why use freeze plugs and cotter pins and not just epoxy or jb weld another pipe plug or even just tap it? Do you need to remove the turbo for what you did or is this extension port just bolted to it and accessible with the downpipe out of the way?

i did it the same way as bigfuel, I had my turbo off already so it was a snap but the EBPV housing does unbolt.

I am terrible about taking pictures though so I don't have any to show.
