If you are having issues with your EGT's being to high then it would be something to look at doing. I gutted mine yesterday because I was looking to get rid of some more EGT's and it has seemed to help. It looks like I have probably dropped between 50 to 100 Degrees by getting rid of the valve. I cut the center post and valve out. I welded the bottom portion of the center post where the actuator rod rides to the valve body so the actuator still hooks up until I have time to gut the pedestal. I then unplugged the solenoid so it doesn't try and activate.

I chose to gut mine completely when I put the D-66 turbo in. Yea my truck takes longer to warm up without it, about 30 seconds to 1 minute longer. On a 20ish degree day it would take about 2 miles to start blowing warm from the vents, now it takes about 2.5 miles. To me it’s not worth keeping and mine was leaking oil from the pedestal. Only reason I could see to keep one would be if you live in extremely cold climate or want a cheap exhaust brake mod.

Depends on where your located. Around the Charlotte area of NC, it dosent get that cold for long. I unplugged mine. Its still there if I want to make an exhaust brake, or just want it to work again. It might take an extra 5-10 mins for the engine to warm up enough for good cab heat.
