It removes the exhaust back pressure valve. better reliablility, slower warmups, better flow.

Its not really useful to have on the truck unless you live in a very cold climate!

My opinion is leave it in.

Since you have a DP-Tuner, Jody can work around it your tuning. I much prefer leaving it in and controlling it through tuning.

For example, I have the decel tune where it acts as an exhaust brake, One of my high idle settings has the EBPV closed always, the other has it deactivated. All my other tunes have it deactivated because it kills your power and MPG's when it comes on when your driving.

There are 2 ebpv mods, one is deleting it, and the other is making it into an exhaust brake. PM me if you want a schematic on making it into a brake.

i gutted mine. it never worked on my truck because some ding dong cut the brass rod that goes from the pedistal to the valve in the outlet flange. i havent noticed any difference other than an ever so SLIGHT decrease in EGT. im talking minimal..i did the bigger outlet flange for the turbo. if its not causing any issues for you, leave it. if it never works for you right now and youre bored, take it out. its a simple thing to do.

for the price of a $1 toggle switch you can make it do what ever you want to do.

I used to have mine wired to a toggle switch so if i wanted to use it to warm the truck i turned it on. If I wanted to use it for a exhaust brake i turned it on.

No need to spend the extra money for tunes that use it.
