Its rewiring the EBPV to a switch and I was acutally looking for specs myself. Where the wires are routed to PCM? . I wonder how durable the EBPV actuator actually is or if excesssive use is going to make it start to leak? My morning routine is always the same, 3/4 mile down road to coffee shop let it idle there for 5-10. So would idling in on my high idle setting and the EBPV on make the truck warm up faster or just make a bunch of noise?


Sorry to jack the thread, but I am looking for similar answers. I think DP has some tunes that use the EBPV for Decel a little, and I think Bully Dog makes a kit too, but I am just looking for a simple on/off switch.

There is no such thing as a true jake brake for these trucks but theres always the option of doing an exhaust brake.....

Well you can make one out of your ebpv as explained here: Homemade exhaust brake
Or there are plenty of custom kits out there you can buy. If you do a google search it should come up with a bunch of different vendors.

.
On cold mornings the truck will close the EBpV (also called a warm up valve) and the computre willl set a high idle at about 1200 rpm's until the truck is warm or you step on the brake then it will drop the idle back down, but keep the EBPV closed until close to opperating temp.

So it will help with warm up and I don't see any real problems with that type of use.
