EBPV delete question

I have been doing some reading on the site and have found many times where the question that if you gut the EBPV actuator and plug the hole with a bolt and replace the cover that it could create a low flow of oil to the turbo and cause it to burn out but I could not find anywhere where someone said that they have done this and not had any long term effects on the turbo. I am wondering if this is safe to do? Also what if the electric valve that controls the flow of oil to the EBPV malfunctions and lets oil fill that housing will there still be enough flow to the turbo under high revs and loads? I need to use my truck in a couple days and just found out that actuator is leaking so I took it apart and did this mod but I don't want to have to redo this at a later date because it sucks to get the turbo clamps to release. Is this mod safe to run long term or is it bettter to get a new pedistal without the EBPV actuator. Sorry this is so long I appreciate your responses.

It's been a few years now, but as I remember we gutted the EBPV from the pedestal, used a plug, maybe a freeze plug in the old hole, and put it back together. At the diesel shop where I'm at that was a common way to do it. Some guys would get the pedestal just because it was a cleaner and easier install. I never had any problems w/mine or heard of any w/that install.

no problems here, its been over a year, and btw unplug the ebpv plug from your pedestal if you havent, that will make sure it doesnt affect oil flow.

OK well I am going to install it this way and hope it don't fry the turbo. If it hasn't hurt your guys turbos yet it is probably just fine thanks for your input.

Got it all back together took it for a drive and all seems good no leaks and turbo spins for probably 4 seconds after I shut off the engine so it must be getting plenty of oil to the bearing and shaft.
