EBPV and EGTs???

Alright, it's getting colder here in MD and I've noticed something. While driving my EBPV keeps opening and closing with load and throttle position. I've been checking the EGT while this is occurring and it's ticking me off. The EGT is staying around 600 degrees (Post-Turbo EGT Probe) and I'm trying to save a little $$$ on fuel. I live about 10-12 mins from work and it's worse in the mornings when I'm driving back home after a mid. Other than ripping the durn thing out, is there anything I can do, or do I just have to be a man and deal with it??? Anyone else having this occur? My truck doesn't warm up all the way in the morning while driving home and after a 12 hr mid, the last thing I want to do is sit in the parking lot and wait 10-15 mins while the truck warms. (I could be home and laying in my warm bed by the time it gets warmed up.)

Comments, suggestions???

The people at the Power Stroke Registry say that maintaining your EGT at about 600 degrees gives you the best fuel economy. I'm just parroting this, because I really don't know. I don't have an EGT gauge, yet, but it and a trans temp gauge are on the list (waiting for an approved budget.)

If you don't think it is serving you well you can unplug the switch down under the turbo.

I've heard alot of talk about unplugging the wastegate and have been considering it. What other advantages if any does unplugging the ebpv have besides the warm up factor ?

2003 350, Crew Cab, LB, 7.3L, 4x4, 18in Verde's w/ 35" Toyo Open Country's, 4" Leveling Kit, Straight pipe, Homemade intake, Warn Premiums, Rhino Liner, Zoodad-10k-T/C lockup mods. DP-F5 and guages on the way.

Unplugging the EBPV only effects the warm up fuction unless you wanted to be sure and wire the arm back. The waste gate is the same way. You can pull the line off and to be shure, wire the arm back to the diaphram.
