EBPV Actuator Rod Leak-Options?

Well as the title states... I've got a leak. What are my options? I plan on doing a WW so I am removing the turbo anyways. Should I run this risk of jerry riggin and just gut it? OR shall I get the NON EBV pedestal? With the pedestal is it wise to get the new 'high flow' outlet? Or can the outlet be gutted with the new pedestal? Just looking to see what my options are. I dont want anymore leaks nor do i want a SES light in the cab. Thanks a lot guys!

unless u hav the extra money layin around, id jus gut eh EBPV and plug the hole wiht a 1/4" pipe plug. then u can take the EBPV housing and gut the flap and plug the one hole there with a 1/2" plug. no leaks or CEL.

i was all for this mod until i saw a few threads about how it can starve the turbo for oil. havent really researched it enough to have made up my mind yet but it might bear looking into before you go that route.

Yeah thats the only thing holding me back... The select few who have had nightmares come true lol. All the talk about welding two holes shut and some other crap? I dont know... I priced out a NON EBPV pedestal, high flow outlet, and new o rings for around 260 from riff raff... So gutting it is definitely cheap, but in the long run...

Ok, I'm about to throw on a GTP38R and was considering gutting it, I see the steps above answered my how to, but now what is this I hear about starving for oil? How does this mod affect oil flow?!?!? Also when you gut the EBPV are you to unplug a connector or something? Is there any check engine light?

wheni did the one on my OBS i jus unpluged it. i didnt hav any CEL.

if this mod starves the turbo for oil its news to me. i dont see how it would tho. alls ur deleting is a plunger inside the turbo pedi, pretty much jus like a hydraulic cylinder without a piston. then the flap thats on the otlet of the turbo gets cut out, this has absolutly no affect on oil, all it is is a butterfly flap in the housing.

Yeah that's what I was thinking, ok so this mod is pretty easy, I'm guessing you tap the holes for the 1/4" and 1/2" npt plugs right?

I've never ever heard of it starving the turbo for oil. And I can't see how that it would, as you don't touch anything having to do with oil...

You'll need a 1/4" NPT plug and tap for the actuator rod, then we took a long bolt and cut that to length to use as plugs and welded them into the turbo to plug the holes from where the butterfly valve was. I've also heard of guys using JB Weld to do this.
