EBPV problem

Hello All,
I am a 18 yr army vet that just bought an E99 F350 Dually with the 6-speed manual...I am new to these powerstroke diesels. Is there anyway to bypass the EBPV under the turbo with a fooler (ie. resistor or etc) if so what size? I have just recently ordered a T500 HPOP for my truck also...a diesel mechanic said that my stock aint keeping up 574 cranking 934 wot.

Thanks

You can just unplug it. Its the yellow, two wire plug with a metal wire clip at the top of the turbo pedestal. It will throw a code, but it is a soft code and wont turn on the light. Mine was unpluged for years cause it would turn on while going down the road

is there a thread to wire it up as an exhaust brake? just splice in a switch, or do you need to add power to it?

I drew this up real quick



The colors are not right, but it dosen't matter because the polarity wont make a differance. You have to cut the factory wiring harness and then splice in your wiring.

Get a high/low beam switch out of an OBS! They mount to the floor, and would work GREAT!

Don't get too excited. Mine dosen't work well (really at all) as an exhaust brake. I think the OBS trucks work better for an exhaust brake.

They work fairly well as a exhaust brake. I have done 29k over a few passes and it was defiantly worth having.
