EBPV sticking???

Hey guys since it's getting colder out I have been having this issue. I will let the truck warm up for about 5 to 10 minutes then I'll take off in the truck. When I leave the water temp gauge has barely moved so I'll be easy on it till the motor is warm. Well between 1300 and 1700 RPMs the ebpv engages well if I let off or accelerate out of the range it turns off. The only time the ebpv engages is when im cruising in that range of RPMs. Once im in full operating temp range it won't do it. I'm sure it's killing my fuel mileage, what needs to be done to fix this.

Unplug the ebpv or get the non ebpv pedestal I just unplugged mine no big deal she still idles up like it's supposed to but no ebpv hiss. The ebpv doesn't really warm the engine up faster, only by a minute or so. It wasn't really worth the minute to me, it may sound cool but if it's sticking and you don't want to dump the money into either gutting the ebpv or getting the non ebpv pedestal you can try cleaning the ebpv sensor and tube or just unplug it at the pedestal.

I plan on buying the deleted pedestal is I can spare the money. But it's as simple as unplugging it and that's it. Where is the connector located and what does it look like

The connector is located right below your turbo, you can see it if you look right below your intake spyder setup. If i remember correctly, you have to unclip a metal retainer from it then it should just unplug from the sensor and your done.

what are the benefits of removing this or deleting it in its entirity does the turbo spin more freely (spool) is it less restrictive flow does it lower egts just trying to get a better understanding

Mainly it restricts air flow so when it starts sticking most guys will just gut the ebpv or get the non ebpv pedestal but for those who do not want to dig into that and don't want to spend the money just yet unplugging the ebpv is the way to go.
