99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Exhaust Backpressure Valve Terminator

After doing some searching around... I came across this small mod.. Can someone please explain to me exactly what the Exhaust Backpressure Valve does? and exactly what this terminator does? After I had bought my 7.3L I did take my sensor out and ran some very thick weedeater string down through the tube to make sure it was not plugged with soot... But I really never thought about what this senor or valve was for.

Thanks Lonnie

the ebpv is used to help aid with warmup when the truck is cold.

most people just gut it.

not gutting the sensor, they gut the valve out of the exhaust side on the turbo.

or you can just unplug it so it will stay open.

Re: 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Exhaust Backpressure Valve Terminator

pardon my ignorance to this matter... does anyone have a pic of this valve that is on the exhaust side of the turbo. I have left my 7.3L basically stock for reliability issues... I'm slowly getting more brave and doing more myself.

the valve is inside all you would see is like a rod coming off the turbo pedistal that controls it.

Ok---Thanks guys. So Basically this terminator is for those who want to disable the sensor? And still the senor will not send a code to pcm? I'm not reading between the lines to well tonight?
