Gutless when cold!!

Let er warm upi for about 10 minutes before work this am, get in to head out and it is very hard pressed to get up to speed! I hear alot of noise in the cab coming from the passenger side as well, once we reached operating temperature power came back.

I was loosing speed going up the slightest of hills, throtle to the floor makes no difference.

It is your EBV being closed when the engine is cold. I believe it is operated from the pcm, the pcm looks at the EOT sensor. When the EOT is warm enough, the pcm opens up the EBV. How cold is it where you are at?

EBPV. You can keep it if you want, or unplug it from under the turbo on the pedestal.
If your GPs, GPR, and thermostat are all working properly, you shouldn't NEED it. But if you find it helps, leave it plugged in.

At the pedestal base, there is a rod coming out on the passenger side to the turbo outlet flange, inside that is a butterfly valve, that's the EBPV. It's working properly. If you don't want it to move, unplug the only thing plugged into the base of the pedestal in the valley.

A pic of it in the truck. Unplug that. But it will still likely be gutless until it warms up but that should improve it a bit. Best thing you can do is switch to a diesel rated 5w40 in winter.
