6637 intake installed but EBPV is louder

Hey guys, I have a '97 7.3 pretty much bone stock except for a 6637 style intake from riffraff I installed tonight. Everything went smooth but it seems my EBPV has gotten louder and seems to stick open more frequently. I live in MA and can see temps in the 10-20's so I'm not sure if unplugging the valve is a good idea. Anyone have any ideas of what may of happened/ should I unplug the EBPV? thanks!

It closes to create back pressure and keep the engine warmer, helps a bit on start up, but if you unplug expect warm up times to increase (by 5-10 min max) but it's not gonna hurt anything to unplug it
