EBPV may be stuck open??? Need some help

So i did as much research as i could but haven't really come up with anything. My truck does the hissing alot when the trucks cold but it doesn't really go away once it warms up. I don't know if the EBPV is stuck open or what. If i disconnect the plug it wont come on again right, just need a little longer to warm up? Got a 4in straight pipe and if i pull up next to a building or another car it sounds rediculous.

What to do???

you can pull the plug and it will always be open. The plug send power to it to close it. Its in a open position when theres no power sent to the plug. I would just unplug it unless you wanna clean it out or delete it.

Someone said that they got like 3 psi more of boost when they did this. Any truth to this? I already push 30 psi at WOT and my dumb@ss has a hard time keeping the right foot from not be planted into the floorboard.

Probably should try and practice a little more self control...

But what the hell, a blown turbo is the best excuse for a newer, bigger, and better one right...

its open all the time, unless it happens to be STUCK closed. theres no need to wire it open. the valve actuates and CLOSES the butterfly.

I have never heard of anyone getting more boost out of it. I dont see how it could. Unless theres was stuck partially closed when they did the mod.

You are getting 30lbs of boost with no tunes, just the 5.6 diode?????? Where are you pulling these numbers from?

I have the 5.6k mod and disconnected wastegate and boost hits 28-29 psi at WOT. In 2nd hits about 25-26 and in third and fourth hits 28-29. The boost guage was already installed when i got the truck but don't have any reason to believe it would be wrong. Still need to do the map fooler mod to prevent the over boost code and defueling...

I disconnected the ebpv this morning and much happier with it like that...

It will stay open if it is open when you pull the plug. Ibeleive that it will stay in the position it is in when it is disconnected. If you unplug it when it is closed it will stay closed.
That is what I was told.
I think vitalidle told me that...
