EBPV... To gut or not to gut?

Okay gang, here's my issue...
My EBPV piston is dripping oil (not a lot, but enough that the truck marks it's territory ) So, do I:
1) fix the leaky bastard, or
2) gut the pedistal, and rip out the butterfly valve.

If I were to rip out the EBPV, would there be any ill effects in winter with a northern climate? ..and does anyone have links or pics of the delete.

Living in Alberta - I'd say fix it, rather then delete it.

weeeellll i think you should just fix it, becuase well you live in canada!!!! i think during the extreme winter you would want the aid of the ebpv to help your engine start. im sayin if you lived in texas like me, our winter drops to a max of 35* so we dont really need the ebpv to help so just fix it.
