Want to get rid of the EBPV butterfly valve!

I recently put a new turbo pedestal on my 02 from garrett that deletes the ebpv. The problem I had immediately was that the butterfly valve was still closing about half way and wouldnt re-open. I would have to manually open it, so I ended up using strong steel wire to hold the butterfly valve open. My question is, is there any turbo housings or anything that can be put on to replace the housing that has the butterfly valve inside it, I want that thing gone, it is nothing but a headache?

Any ideas, please let me know...much appreciated

I got my "high flow" outlet from itp, bolts right up to the stock turbo or the 38r.
High Flow Outlet
Also, I think i read something on removing the valve out of the stock housing, this would be the cheapest. I guess you have to plug some holes that removing the shaft of the valve leaves.

Just grind out the rivets or welds for the flapper... then remove the rod that holds it and plug it with a freeze plug. It isn't quite the same as the high flow outlet. The high flow outlet is a touch larger...

Just throw down on the ITP hi-flow exhaust outlet. I think it's $120 or so. Never again will you worry about that valve closing and it'll cool it down just a bit on the EGT guage. Mine went from about 600 before I got the valve to about 550 or so after (at freeway cruise, unloaded). Not a huge drop. It also seems to spool a bit quicker. You'll see why when you get the hi-flow valve in your hands.
