if he means the exhaust back pressure control valve, just unplug it. Make sure the vale is open in the exhaust. If its hooked up properly to the new turbo, u can just unplug it and forget it.

your welcome, The rod that goes thru the pedestal that operats the ebpv has an o ring that seals oil from leking. As long as you dont have oil pouring out the whole bpv system can be totally removed and plugged or the power wires going to the system can just be unhooked. The system is not nccessary. The valve it opens in the output side of the turbo just needs to be open so the exhaust flows out of it. The system closes when the motor is cold to help it warm up faster. But its noteeded and you wouldn't even know it was gone
