EBPV and the Cold

ok I know how the valve works and all but with straight pipe exhaust its annoying at times. Was wondering if someone could tell me how much this valve actually helps. I live in alaska so temps can get down in the negatives. I am thinking about doing the mod to take it out but if it keeps the engine from warming up at all I dont want to. Even with the cold it takes awhile to warm up. Will disabling the valve make a huge difference or what? Also it cant be good for my mileage since I feel the difference in horsepower when it is engaged and when its not.
