Completely clogged EBPV tube

My buddy just bought a Snap on scanner for $11,500 and wanted to try it out. We hooked this thing up to my truck in the garage and went inside to drink a beer next to the fire because it's a wireless system ( this thing is awesome) and got a EBPV sensor code. I pulled the tube off and it was clogged completely to the point that I couldn't barely push a screwdriver through the sludge. My question is my truck starts up in the cold fine and after a min. the idle kicks up like it should and when I hit the gas it kicks back down, how did that work with the sensor doing nothing? Do you guys think the performance will be better with the new tube and the sensor working?

If I read corectly, the tube has nothing to do with the high idle. That is done by a sensor reading the in coming below 40* air in the intake. The tube helps control the actual EBV on the back of the turbo. When it idles up you should also hear what sounds like a loud hissing coming from the exhaust where the EBV is closing causing the exhaust to shut off putting exhaust heat back to the motor to help warm it up quicker or keep it warm. You will find A LOT of people on here to tell you not to worry about it. You don't need the EBV and the same amount of people telling you to fix it and leave it on there. I personaly have mine unplugged.

Yeah I hear ya I've read every post I could find on the thing and it's 50/50 if you should keep it. My big question is am I going to see an increase in performance with a functional sensor and tube that was doing nothing before?

No you will not see any more performance under normal conditions. Keeping in mind that when the EBV kicks in you loose hp and fuel mileage. Its like stuffing a potatoe up your tail pipe.

Well I got the new tube in and it seems to run better. OK actually I think it's just wishful thinking but the lieometer is showing better mileage. What does that sensor do exactly? I thought I read that it sends some parameters to the computer when you're driving under some conditions.

The sensor is used to help determine fuel control. They can do all sorts of strange stuff if it's not reading right.
