runs just fine with the gutted pedestal and back pressure housing. Mine takes approximately an extra 5 minutes to reach operating temp at high idle.
The BPV kept sticking on me, til I got sick of it, and out it came. 1/2 coarse tap through the actuator rod hole, 1 bolt, 1 washer, 1 nut and some silicone. no more problem. I don't see any realised percentage in buying a solid pedestal, other than the million to one chance that the BACK o-ring might someday leak.
Other than that, like I say, runs as good as it ever did.
