Gutting EBV ???'s

I have been thinking about Gutting the EBV and cutting the warm up valve out of the turbo outlet. Are there any advantages or disavantages? Would the be any CEL probs that I need to worry about? Is it worth doing this? Thanks for any input

Just unplug it. The valve will stay open. It will set a soft cel code, a code that dosent keep the cel light on. Only disadvantage I've found, it take alittle extra time to warm up when its cold out.

mine has been disconnected for months now. haven't noticed any difference in warm up time. my MPG's have gone up.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

Cold weather should not be a problem. I live in SE Louisiana.

Advantage - keeps it from sticking and robbing you of fuel mileage or power.

You can remove the housing from the turbo with it in the truck, just use a 5/16th 12 point socket and have some swivel universals reasy for the back ones.
