Keep or Delete EBPV?

I know this is everywhere on the forums, but i cannot find exactly the answers i am looking for. My turbo pedestal is leaking so I am about to pull it and do bellowed up pipes and ww2 as well. I am pretty sure the EBPV ram or actuator is leaking oil too. I can delete or rebuild it. I do like how fast the engine builds heat here in our chilly Colorado winters. Do you guys think it will hurt warm up time at all in cold weather like Colorado's?
I know the EBP sensor can effect mileage too, I just cleaned the tube and sensor recently. Will removing the EBPV and doing a Non-EBPV pedestal have any effect on mileage through the sensor or will the sensor work with the pcm regardless of whether there is or isn't a EBPV anymore? I cant afford to lose ANY mileage. Thanks for your input in advance.

I'm up north of the border. My EBPV has been disconnected all winter and no problem down to -30C. Mileage difference was unnoticeable, truck warms up just fine when you let it kick into high idle and sit there a while. 5 minutes or so and my temp gauge starts to move.

You can delete or rebuild it. It does help a little for warm-up, but not significantly. You will not see a change in mileage at all.

Id opt to keep it. Personally, I like that I wired mine to a switch to engage it whenever I want. I use it most days to warm the engine faster than without. The sensor engages it (even on the colder days) at only about 90% by itself and then is quick to lower it to about 50% while cycling on/off. With a switch, it is engaged at 100% and with the high idle, warms the engine in no time at all.

+1 to keep it but to each their own.

Yeah, I guess my confusion was really whether or not removing it would cause the sensor to malfunction with the pcm and cause reduced mileage just like it does when it or the tube gets plugged. After some more research I realized that it should continue to do its job with the pcm regardless of whether the valve is in place or not.
So I assume the factory AIC will still idle up fine after deleting the EBPV?

My pedestal was leaking bad and I opted to rebuild it and keep the ebpv. I also made a custom adaptor for my Van turbo just so i could keep it.
I like using it as an exhaust brake and I like the crazy howling it does on cold days.
Thats just me though

There are a couple of threads on here about applying a switch to turn your EBPV on/off. It wont override the sensor on a cold start (as it will still engage, like it would without any modification) but will be an on the fly application for 100% activation of the butterfly valve (as stated above, it usually only uses about 90% of itself without the mod).

I havent made a torque converter lockup for mine yet (auto) but intend on using it for a brake in the long run. I love that crazy howling too and get reactions and questions a lot from other truck guys surprisingly. Nothing like switching the EBPV and high idle on a cold morning.

So will the factory AIC still work fine if I delete the EBPV?
