Ebp and fuel mileage

I took off my Ebp sensor and tube, the tube is so packed with soot I can't get anything through it. Would that affect fuel mileage or what would it do

no change for me

Both units were replaced on my 96 with no increase in mileage to be noticed.

I unplugged the sensor with No change in the idle going up and down, it's very slight but I do notice it, is that normal?

OK so I unplugged the sensor and drove around. Stopped and idled for a bit with No hiccups, plugged it back in, drove, idled and it did would raise and fall again. I'm thinking it's the sensor. Can I just leave it unplugged? What will it do? And is there a way to delete it

Make sure your exhaust back pressure valve is fully open. And since that tube and sensor are so plugged up I doubt it is having any effect. You could always delete the valve itself. There are a few write ups and it is a simple task. I've done it, but I also deleted my pedestal and that was not as simple...correction, still simple just more of a pain in the balls cause of removing turbo.

I unplugged the ebpv, plan on gutting it when it warms up, I was just wondering if I could unplug the sensor or if it would have a bad effect? I've read up on it, some people say it just controls the ebpv others say it has something to do with fueling and defueling
