Actually I was mistaken on the EBP tube and sensor, they dont control the EBPV but is a good preventative maintenance since mine was cracked and plugged at 103k.
I am getting ready to delete mine so wont have to worry about it anymore but from my understanding that is how they are supposed to operate. Mine will come on and off while driving depending on how hard I am accelerating when just cruising along about 40 I can hear it come on and off all the time. Have 4 7.3s in the family and all operate this way.
I believe the PCM will activate the EBPV when temps are 35 and oil temp is below 180 (not sure if both have to be meet or just one), I never really paid attention but I know on cold days below freezing it will operate even with the oil temp in the 130-150 range especially when idling since it is trying to keep the oil temp up.
