EBPV DELETE?

Hey all, I just finished installing a MBRP 4" turbo back exhaust, sounds great! (except for the LOUDER EBPV HISSING) so here it is... Which way should i go about killing this damn thing?

1) unplug it?

2) gut the entire thing out?

3) just destroy the flapper?

any suggestions from anyone who's already done this would be greatly appreciated. I don't care how i kill it, i just want it to die! but without causing other problems (via codes, leaks, etc etc.)

Thanks,

Richard

Unplug it, and when you get the time, delete it. I'm soooooo glad I did.

I just deleted mine. The plug for it is on the front of the turbo pedistal. I never had any problems with mine but the actuator was leaking oil so I just gutted it and welded the hole shut and tacked the butterfly valve open. Seems to be working out fine.

unplug it for now, but if you plan to do any turbo work(aka removing it) gut it while you're in there! best thing i did.

I live in Ohio, it is @20 degrees here now. How would deleting it effect cold weather warm-up? Can I get by w/o it in cold weather or will it cause me problems when idling first thing in the morning while warming up?
Thanks
