Disconnecting EBPV?

Im having some issues with my truck leading me to an EBPV acting up. I know the best course of action is to gut it or get a new pedistal but as of now i dont really have time to do that. So right now i just want to disconnect it and use the resistor from pure diesel (99-03 Ford 7.3L Powerstroke Exhaust Backpressure Valve Terminator)

Am I going to run into any issues doing this?

Unplug the sensor itself that's easy.

As for wiring it open, disconnect the actuator rod and just wrap some mechanic's wire around the butterfly and then to the intake spider to hold it open.

For the record, I'm in Canada, -30C starts in winter time and mine has been wired open since very shortly after i got the truck... no issues.

Yup its on the underside of the turbo outlet once you get your hands down there you'll see it's pretty simple could be done in 5 minutes.

Wired as in with baling wire. There is an arm coming out of the pedestal at the bottom to the housing AFTER the exhaust housing.
The Dfuser or Pure Diesel or diode will just keep from storing a soft code.
