EBPV switch

ok i have read alot about this... i just want to know one thing


seeing as every "pre-built mod" for this says only works with your foot completley off the gas pedal..

is there a way to wire it up so you can still give it gas with it closed?

cuz my truck sometimes sticks closed when i start up fast and go and if i put it to the floor it dumps soot

any info on this would be appriciated

Need a little more information on what you're wanting to resolve here...
I'm gonna take a swing and say you're starting up in a cold situation, and not letting it warm up a little before taking off????

1) What you're trying to do - this will not work the way your thinking.
2) Closing the EPBV - you'll wind up likely clogging up the turbine area since the 7.3's bypass is only about the size of a quarter.
3) You'd be better off getting a aftermarket 6-position chip (or better) that has custom tunes. There are couple out there that have a setting for "smoke show" to play around with.

The EBPV is essentially designed to help generate heat to warm up in cold situations by releasing the pressure and keep the RPM's up until the engine at near operating temps.
If anything - you want the EBPV to be open to let all that unburned fuel out!

Or you could just wrap your lips around the pipe and suck until you pass out. Probably just as wise.

If you're going to be an ****** and try to make your slow truck smoke, buy a Cummins. The diesel community has a bad enough reputation without more idiots "smoking" stuff out. Once your testes drop and you grow some facial hair you'll realize how "dumping" coal is for 17 year olds driving daddy's diesel, not an intelligent human being.

As for the answer to your question. Yes you can wire to do that. You're EGT's will break 1300 and you'll kiss your turbo, fuel mileage, uppie gaskets and if you're lucky, a piston or two goodbye. Also, it'll only do it a couple times until it seizes stuck or your EBPV piston leaks like a sieve.

Now grow up.

I knew once I saw his post - someone was going to go off.


But agreed - that's why the EPA''s coming down on everyone because of this stuff.

WARNING!

Okay - Before this goes any closer to the drain. Let's keep it civil. Coal Rolling is a touchy subject. Many times these threads get closed because they go south.

STOP.

Address the issue, explain your point to be understood - Name calling isn't necessary.

So this EBPV thing helps the 7.3 warm up quicker? Cause I live in Ohio and it's freezing balls outside and I like my trucks to be warm when I leave for work, my 6.0 goes to high idle by itself but my 7.3 just sits there and slowly warms up (there both plugged in all winter, at home and at work) but I'd like for it to get to operating tempature quicker.
