It's a valve that closes when its cold outside to assist in warming up the engine there are no real pros performance wise in keeping it you might see a minute or too faster warm up by keeping it. There are also no real pros performance wise getting rid of it except that those things leak oil they are a weak point. This is what you hear hissing in the cold.

It closes the flap in the exhaust and creates back pressure they claim it help the engine het up faster.
If you do not want it to work unhook the wire harness in the turbo pedalstool.
There is no reason to mod it unless it leaks by the push rod on the pedalstool.

I believe it is just after the turbo it reduces the amount of exhaust leaving the engine speeding up warm ups. In my opinion I don't see much faster warm ups with it. It's mainly a personal choice if you don't mind listening to it keep it but clean out the sensor every now and then or your mpgs might fall a little.

It's a butterfly valve directly behind the outlet of the turbo's exhaust side, built into the cast housing that bolts to the turbo, actually.

If it's cold it, it closes to "help warm the engine up"...IMHO, it just makes a boatload of noise. It is also a bit of a restriction when it's open (although, I doubt you'd ever even notice it). Unless your at the point of needing an aftermarket turbocharger, I wouldn't mess with it...

I'll answer too
Exhaust Back Pressure Valve. There is a butterfly valve in the exhaust, before the downpipe and after the exhaust turbines. It closes during cold operation to help the engine warm up by increasing back pressure. In the turbo pedestal, there is a piston actuated by oil, that, when commanded, pushes an actuator rod and closes or opens the EBPV. Sometimes, they stick, causing loss of power when driving. Personally, I unplugged mine. The plug is at the base of the pedestal.

Here is a picture for reference...I swapped out my EBPV pedastel for a non-EBPV unit, as well as a non-EBPV exhaust housing. It made a HUGE difference. Turbo spools a bit faster, and my EGT's are lower when towing.

Nathan - do you live in colder climates? If so have you noticed any real difference with warm up times?

We've only had a hand full of days in or below the 20s in MI.

The EBPV is useless. I live in Saskatchewan, Canada. We routinely see -50*C during the winter, and have zero issues with it.
