Exhaust back pressure valve need good opinions!

got my truck a couple weeks ago 97 1 ton. in the mornings the exhaust valve opens and closes going down the road for quicker warm up. i let the truck run for 15-30 minutes before leaving the house. read on a thread from tyler(new 7.3 guys read this) that this is normal (alot of guys agreed). but it is driving mee freakin nuts!!!!!! i heard u can unplug it. my buddy has it wired open with safety tie wire and he has no problems also read that other guys have gutted it. i want that thing open all the time. bad idea? why?whats the best way to do it? thanks guys this is my first powerstroke so i'm learning.

unplugging it is the easy way, just make sure the valve is open when you unplug it. Gutting it is complicated and you have to remove the turbo to do it right. I have both of my trucks unplugged and they run just fine. I hated the stupid valve. I wanna gut them I just havent got there yet

instead of gutting it you can also turn it into an exhaust brake

Only a good idea with a 5 speed. Its overly hard on autos to use them like that unless they are built and programmed for it

EBP Woes

I have also had my EBP valve disconnected on my 1997 F250 for nearly two years. Stinks that these things cannot function as they were intended, however I have had no adverse effects of having the stupid thing unplugged. I just discovered, after having paid the local Ford dealer to replace the EBP assembly on my '01 F350, that it too now performs the same way. Welcome to my world Good luck to you!

I keep mine connected, if it's still closed after warm up I just turn off the truck for 10sec then restart and it opens.
