I live in central Illinois and I removed mine during winter because mine was leaking and sticking shut. I bought an aftermarket pedestal for an turbo upgrade in the future and also it won't leak again. And deleting it does not do anything except have the high whistle while warming up

I'm sorry i made a mistake the difference in deleting it is that it does not have the high whistle while warming up like it does with the ebpv

Oh ok gotcha. I was just thinking about removing it because 1. I notice other guys do it and 2. I just don't really like the hissing sound the truck makes when its cold outsite and the lack of power until she warms up. It was about 30* outside one morning and i had to listen to it all the way to work and I was worried something was wrong until I posted on the org about it. Until now, the only diesels I drive were the trucks at work so I never really dealt with it since they all have a CAT C-12 or C-15 engines

Deleting? Are you just unplugging it? I recommend removing the butterfly in the exhaust housing flange. Use a 1/2" pipe tap to put threads in (the hole is perfect size already no drilling) and use Allen head plugs.

Help exhaust flow. Especially at times when your foot is heavy. Less back pressure on turbo and egt's
