7.3 pedistal source?

Hi Folks,

I just got off the phone with a d-bag that quoted me $1000 for a reman turbo pedistal w/EBPV.

Where's a good place to pick one up? My local ford dealer wanted 750...I've seen them for less.

Who should I do business with?

thx!

Yes, mine is leaking.
I live where it gets cold so I'm looking to keep the EBPV in place.

I have a couple leaks. Either valve covers or oil rail plugs and the pedestal. Time is not on my side in doing this myself so, I was going to bring it somewhere to get done. I was quoted a price of $3K to do valve covers/oil rails and the pedistal.

$3k $1K for the reman. pedistal

Any leads on where to get a EBPV enabled pedestal? - or leads on a non-crook mechanic in Central MA?

thx!

How cold? The vans don't have one and no problems with them running in cold wheather.
Get a rebuild kit if you want to keep it

Hey I live in RI and yes it gets cold what about when I spend the winter in Vermont riding sleds very cold. I deleted mine just plug your truck in and that is it I have the banks exhaust with the power elbow and I gutted my pedestal also. Forget that ebpv does nothing but restrict power. Your not living in the arctic tundra either.

i have no ability to plug it in where I'm at.

I'll look into rebuild kits but was hoping for a complete unit to just swap.
