Yeah. Alot of guys do.

When EBPV starts to stick close, thats usually the culprit.

Also ck. the tube. Mine was clogged shut, I removed mine and used a torch to get it glowing hot, then tapped the tube on the shop floor, then blew air thru it. I noticed alot less ebpv at startup.

I can't find mine? I think it was removed when the previous owner installed the Banks exhaust. I can feel the rod from the actuator but it doesn't seem to have anything to hook too?

Can a clogged sensor cause excessive white/grey smoke?
Mine was changed some time ago when smoking and has started smoking again
