Turbo replacement issue

I just received a new (remanu) gtp38 and pedestal for my 2000 7.3 (stock). When comparing the old turbo & pedestal side by side to the new ones, I noticed that the new pedestal doesn't have the EBPV solenoid connector. The new turbo also doesn't have the EBPV actuator. If i install this new combo, what do i do with the EBPV connector, just leave it hanging?

Leave it hanging. I'd love to get the non EBPV outlet/pedestal.
Dfuser does have a resistor that plugs into the harness to eliminate the soft code but it's worthless to me.

ya i want to get the same kit.
the turbo you got basically has a non ebpv pedestal so you wont get any leaks from that and it sounds like a high flow outlet so no butterfly valve.

Yep you have the pedestal most guys swap over too because it gets rid of the EBPV so when its cold you wont have the annoying cutout of power when you go over 2000 rpms

Ok, I got the new turbo & pedestal installed now and took it for a spin; sounds & feels much better, BUT.. now i have an oil leak. Not happy. I can't see exactly where its coming from but i'm guessing between pedestal and turbo..? Anyone experience this? Its leaking profusely mostly after i shut it off. I did put in both those 2 little O-rings, but there's nothing else between turbo & pedestal, which didn't seem right at the time. Before i start over, anyone have some good advice for someone who knows little about what he's doing?

Should be four orings. Two between turbo and pedestal. Two between motor and pedestal.

Thats what i thought! BUT, both surfaces - between motor & pedestal - it was completely flat, even next to both ports. There isn't any grooves for the o-rings to seat into.
