EBPV Powerstroker exhaust brake

Hey guys, iv been reading about the EBPV exhaust brake mod and the original owner of the truck i just picked up actually gave me a "powerstroker" kit that he never installed. So my question is, how well do they actually work, and what are the chances of actually floating a valve? I wont even bother putting it on if its common to float a valve as reliability is more important to me.

Ok, in the main forum index if you scroll down until you find the tech files, click "7.3 mod help"

Lots of good stuff in there, the write up you're looking for is third from the bottom, second page.

However, i found it a lot easier to get a DP-Tuner chip with the exhaust brake tune. It works excellent.

Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

Thanks I never saw that down there before, lots of good threads there. I was not really looking for the write up on how to do it though because I was given a kit and instructions. Was looking more along the lines of how common is it to float a valve, or if anyone has done it before. Also, is there a chance of the ebpv sticking closed? Or do they generally stick open when they go bad?

So now this has turned into a help thread since I decided to do the mod. I have everything. installed. Except the blue wire that goes into the red and green striiped wire above the tps that the instructions talk about. Any help on which wire to splice into? Will the harness work without hooking this up? Thanks in advance.

Figured it out, works just everybody describes on here, not gonna squeal any tires when engaging it, but it will slow you down a little bit. I think I will use it more for warming the truck up or if i leave it idle for a little bit seeing how a chip with a high idle setting is not currently in my budget. I like having control of it though, so I can flick it on whenever I want and not wait for the computer to say its cold enough out to turn on.
