Talking EBPV pedestal delete

My local Ford dealer diagged my truck. Among other things they said that I need a new pedestal and that the EBPV is bad. I am looking into buying a new pedestal that deletes the valve.

My question is: Do I need to buy just the pedestal? Or do I need to buy or do something with the the EBPV also? What other parts will I need to complete this fix? And are there any tips anyone has for this job? Thanks

You can delete the EBV guts yourself in your pedistal and then wire the flap open so it stays open all of the time.

That's what I have read. But I have also read from quite a different users that that is a very poor way to do it, and there are a couple different problems that can stem from doing it that way. But thank you for the tip.

What's the problems steming from doing it?

Gut it, tap it, plug it and reinstall it. It won't leak anymore!

I read that it still may leak, and that the turbo isn't getting as much oil as it needs. I don't know forsure. I'm sure the way you suggested works otherwise people wouldn't do it that way. But assuming I do get the new pedestal with the delete, do I do anything with the EBPV? Thanks

What would you do with a EBPV that's gone at that point? Maintain answered your question with 2 different options.

it wouldnt matter about the oil. The ebpv doesnt have a oil line to it, dont belive so at least. Not worth the money to buy a new pedestal and what not when you can do the same thing for FREE for the most part just i just a 20mm freeze plug and some time

There are two oil lines that run up to the bottom of the pedistal and through it to the turbo. Thats where the "turbo pedistal Orings" come into play.

there is an actuator that's hooked up to a sensor that allows oil to push the rod out and that activates the ebp valve.

So if you remove the actuator and plug the hole there won't be any oiling issues... it'll all go to the turbo.

how common are cracked turbo pedestals?

my mechanic seems for sure that it needs to be replaced for $995 all said and done. we already took it in once for a diag. on the oil leak and it needs to back after a week since he put dye in it and wants to pinpoint its cause. he also said due to me running 15 /40 oil and not amsoil the cold forced the oil out...it is only happening when really cold and running.

15-40 caused it?

I've only heard of cracked turbo pedestal (and I think that happened when the idiot was reinstalling it), never seen one. I'd look at the orings first.
