Low Boost - culprit found EPBV

I was tracking down the classic low boost culprits on a buddy's truck. The boost pegged 3 psi at 70 mph and maxed at 7 or 8 psi at wot. I unplugged the EPBV and she's right back to full boost.

Bad EBPV sensor was the problem, it completely robbed the truck from building boost. Pedestal delete is next on the list.

My reason for posting is for lost boost issues, try unplugging the EBPV, it only takes a second and may very well be the problem.
