EBPV delete

ive been tearing into my 01 for the past several days.
ive replaced headgaskets, installed a fresh set of heads.
replaced O-rings in the oil cooler, and new water pump.




now to break down the turbo and replace the guts with a unit I got from pure turbo with the billet compressor wheel.

ive seen videos on youtube where they cut off the EBPV.

from what I understand, that this is for cold conditions.
I am in California, so it don't get "cold"
this truck came with a BD exhaust brake so my stock EBPV does not do a damn thing.
id like to get rid of it.
have any of you done this?
cutting the cylinder off the pedestal, and welding up the inside holes?

what are your thoughts?

their is a video on how to do this in the 7.3 tech files section.use a freeze plug for the ex housing then a bolt where the actuator comes out

i opted to just by the non ebpv pedestal and outlet, for a cleaner, leak free setup.

I just purchased a EBPV delete pedestal.
150 bux.
my only concern was that my aluminum welding is sub par.
I didn't want to keep the barrel on for the ease of install.
this new piece will make that happen a lot easier and cleaner like you said!

Does the stock high idle function still work if you delete ebpv? I realize the flap won't close but does it still high idle when cold?

My pedestal and turbo came with an aftermarket exhaust brake, so the stock housing was removed and the valve itself was still in the pedestal not being used.

I havnt gotten this truck fired up yet, im hoping tomorrow.

ouch most vendors sell the non-ebpv pedestal and high flow outlet for 180 bucks.

and you might need to get a ebpv delete plug from riffraff so you dont throw a soft code come smog time.
i just got one from riffraff

so the BD exhaust brake is a waste of money in that the factory stuff could be wired to do the exact same thing??

if I was to purchase a BD exhaust brake, I wouldn't. but if said exhaust brake came with the truck, then no moneys have been waisted...
