EBP sensor/EBPV delete

Read that if you're EBP sensor/tube is clogged, you're fuel mileage will decrease. I'm getting close to 100k on my 02 7.3 so I'm sure it couldn't hurt to check it out. My only question is I've done the EBPV gut/delete/plug call it what you want but is this sensor still affecting my 7.3/performance if I've gotten rid of the EBPV? I'm not sure if one affects the other figured I'd ask before I go ahead at it.

I'm also adding a prepump filter this weekend along with dropping my tank hoping to find the screens on my sender/pickup unit being dirty looking for some mpg increase. Figured I would clean the EBP sensor/tube as well if need be.

Thanks

Jason

Wow no one answered this? If you deleted the valve itself on the pedistal then the sensor is gonna have nothing to communicate with. So basically no, it will not affect anything. most people still clean the sensor and the tube, but leave it all hooked up

Actually i dont believe that is correct from what i have read. The EBPV is the butterfly valve that closes to create back pressure so the engine warms up faster. The EBPS registers how much back pressure the exhaust has and from that it regulates the fuel so thats why when you have a plugged tube the sensor thinks theres more back pressure than there is so it thinks you need more fuel when you dont, thus terrible mpg. Yes they are related but not in the way you are thinking so yes you need to clean the tube and sensor

Someone else can chime in and correct me but from what i understand thats how it is

i think i read the OP wrong. i see what you're both meaning now. I thought you were asking if having the sensor hooked up affects any of the cold weather crap, or if you could just unplug it.

Yes, keep the sensor clean and the tube free...she'll like that
