ebpv again?

Just out of curiosity has anyone who has a harsh winter 4 months of below 20 degrees deleted there ebpv and had success im not one to really let my truck warm up i usually leave it plugged in and then start it put on the high idle for 1-3 min then drive to work.... wondering if this will become un doable if i delete it..... my problem is i have an air leak somewhere when im goin on the highway acceleration mostly it sounds like a jet engine or a faucet running from under the hood i cant seem to find where the leak is (exhaust is new).... any suggestions or recommendations

Delete it... I got rid of the EBPV and AIH while living in Alaska, just kept the high idle tune for warm up, and put my block heater on a timer. A little smokey on real cold nights, but no issues.

The whooshing noise IS the ebpv... thats not a leak.

I live in Buffalo where we are 20* or below 6mos out of the year. It's already in the 40's here. For a good 2-3mos out of the year, temps are between 0*f and -20*f here in ski country My truck would never get up to temp if I didn't have the ebpv. This year I'm thinking about making an engine cover for it like I've done with my tdi, as that seems to be the way to go. But if you dont have an engine cover, you will never maintain heat while driving in the winter. If anything, put the ebpv on a switch so if it comes on when you dont want it to, you can turn it off.

I forgot to finish my post. For 2-3months out of the year we sit around 0* to -20* f.... and if I didn't have my ebpv, my truck would NEVER get up to temp.

Them temps are similar, not sure what the difference is, I have an 03, and I put a strip of cardboard behind the grill, warm up took about 20 min. every morning.
Also used power specialties winter additive religiously.
The worst day ive been in was -60 in northern AK and the diesel in the fuel bowl was heavy, almost jelly like... A couple of treatments with Heat and a propane bottle heater and about 40 min. of warm up time and on the way I went. Worst day ever.

Bottom line, it just depends in where you live, most of the U.S. can get by with out the ebpv and IH.

I've gelled a motor a few times... it sucks ball sack. It IS the worst thing ever.

Regardless, if you do a lot of city driving and no highway driving, the truck will never get up to heat w/out the evpv or at least some cardboard behind the grill.

Stick your hand back there when it's cool of course, feel around, if ur hand comes back soot black, may have a bad/loose up pipe...

If it were the ped, it would be leaking oil

Could also look for a loose exhaust outlet V ban. That would also be soot black as well I'd guess.

What are the conditions when you hear this, idle, rpm, ambient temp, engine temp, under load, towing, etc ?
