should i do EBPV delete?

Hey guys im new to the site and bought my first 7.3L diesel. Its a 2000 f250 6speed with 156,000 miles. I ordered the ccv delete last night and the larger glow plug solenoid also. I see some oil in the valley and want to start getting the parts to fix it. Im figuring its the turbo pedestal and EBPV. But the truck is my DD and i live here in PA. Is it going to really effect my cold starts? or should i just redo all the gaskets when i pull it apart and leave it stock? also i plan on building this truck up with performance parts (which leads to another post) but while i have the turbo off should i rebuild it? put a "Wicked wheel" on it? thanks for any help guys Kyle

ebpv honestly does nothing but annoy... i dont care what people say about the cold. theres hundreds of trucks running around without em... mine warms up just fine without one, no noticeable difference.

If I lived in Alaska, and never warmed-up my truck before driving it off, I might feel it's necessary. Other than that I wouldn't expect you to miss it.

I always let my truck idle for 5-10mins before I drive it in really cold weather so, I never hear that "whooshing" when I drive so, I never bothered to rip mine out....

weather to pull the ebpv is up to you, based on where you live, how could it gets, and how long it takes to warm up.
lots of guys do not need them simple cause the do not deal with cold enough temperatures for it to be big deal.

i live in south east iowa and im about to fix mine, i will never pull mine off, and plus you can wire it up as a jake break, so to me it works great since it drops below 0 in winter and i pull gravity wagons, mud trucks, building material, so mine works as a double feature,

I plan on keeping mine. It works like it should, and serves a purpose. I was up in MN and it was -10 this weekend. So I want it to warm up. If I lived in a warmer climate where the truck warmed up easily I would think about removing it, especially if you plan on serious upgrades, 450+hp, it is a slight restriction even when open and will limit airflow if you build for big power.

what temperature do you consider "cold" in order not to remove the CCV? where I live, it never gets below 3°C in winter. thats something around 41°F

Mine is going bye bye, I'm tired of it kicking on while I'm driving at a constant speed and I doubt it helps it warm up much faster.

3*C is not "cold". -10 C is getting there, we regularly see -15C (4F) and it's no big deal at night to get -25C here (-13F).
