EBPV-To gut or not to gut?

I've thinking about whether or not to pull my turbo/pedestal and totally remove the EBPV, plug up all the holes and be done with it. I wonder if I'm gonna miss it on single digit mornings though. Is there anyone else here who has either disabled the EBPV or gutted it totally that has sub 10 degree winters? I want the free flowing exhaust and more turbo noise (and I want the beepbeepbeepbeep thing to stop sticking!) but I don't want the truck to never warm up on cold mornings. I don't mind idling it for 10 min in the morning when its cold, I do that already.

Is there anything else I should check/do while I'm in there?

I converted mine to an exhaust brake and love it... I will be losing it for the 1.15 housing I am adding to the BB turbo now, but the improvement by deleting it is SMALL...

I deleted mine and I don't miss that thing at all. Takes the truck about 10
min. to warm up, mine was sticking which was making my mpg suck. It runs
better for me. It's a cheap way out instead of buying the ped. My 2c..

Mines been gone for a year and half. Don't miss it, had some below zero weather this winter just takes a couple more minutes to warm up, but you don't lose the fuel mileage any more either. I dropped about 50 deg off of my pyro also. And you can really hear the turbo whistle now. (major plus!!)

That settles it-out it goes. Should sound pretty sweet once I go 4" straight pipe I heard it takes about 7 hours to get the turbo out, do what needs to be done and put it back in-is it really that tedious?

Your first one could take you awhile. The hardest part is getting the clamp off of the back. The more you do the more little tricks you learn to get it off.

I unplugged mine and it was the best mod to date! Gas milage is up considerably! Takes a bit longer to warm up, but well worth the trade off of no hissing, and crappy milage, and no power!

The night befor you do your turbo spray liquid wrench on the down pipe clamp and the exhaust inlet clamp that will make it a little easier it taks me about 40minute and the turbo is out you should only nee a 1/4 drive with extension and 7/16 deep, 5/16 deep and a 3/8 deep and a 1/2 deep for the turbo I would go to home depot or a local hardware store that sells 3" drain pipe and pick up two 3" caps they work great over the intakes so you don't drop anything down their also take a digital camera and take alot of photos that way if you forget something you just pull up the photo last but not least get a peice of 5/8" plywood 28" wide by 36" to 40" long its nice if you have carpet on it but lay that over the front so you could lay belly down you'll see once you get started have fun.
