Re: How do you disconnect EBPV

The plug is located directly under the intake outlet to the spyder. I deleted mine last month because I was having the same issue. But the plug has a wire loop to retain the plug but its not hard if you lay on top and just feel around the front of the pedestal till you locate it.

Don't just disconnect it, delete it all together. The plug is easy to get too but chances are that your EBPV is probably leaking (they all leak on the 7.3) and you can get a pedestal with the EBPV delted (for the econoline) as well as the garret cast flange where the butterfly resides. Its not too expensive at around 200 for all the parts and the benefit if EGT reduction and les restriction right at the turbine is always a good gain. Just remember if you do the full delete to get new bolts for the garrett turbo, think their are 7 on that plate. Garrett lists the turbo bolts as single use, they are cheap and not worth the hassle.

Agreed I look at it as you are preventing an oil leak in the future cause we all know that issues never come up when the money and time is available its always the most inconvenient time. I did mine in 7 total hours and that's with the foil delete, cleaning every part, installing a wicked wheel and painting the turbo and spyder.

You where a bit more adventurous than I was with the painting. I would like to see some pics. I have to pull the spyder, turbo and pedestal to replace the up pipes. I just had all that stuff out last month to do all the oil and fuel seals on the injectors, fuel filter housing, HPOP and upgraded and rebuilt the turbo with the banks wheel, garret blow off for the larger turbo (big improvement alone right there) and EBPV eliminate. At least all of my oil leaks have been cured, the last dealership I had the truck at on a road trip told me the rear main was leaking, it wasn't but the EBPV was badly and the HPOP was as well.

Re: How do you disconnect EBPV

All I used was black high heat rattle can paint from the local hardware store. And its been holding up I strongly advise getting intake boots from riff raff because the stock ones stick out. If you want more let me know. http://pbr1301.photobucket.com/album...ps69da4ebf.jpg
