EBPV delete?

What does this do? I know the EBPV makes my truck sound like a B52 after a few minutes from startup if I let it idle but what is it's main purpose and what's to gain from deleting it? I hear of people getting shorting caps to kill codes and leave the sensor sitting in the engine valley.

Can someone enlighten me on the purpose of this or lead me to an informative page that will?

Thanks
Dave

Re: EBPV delete?

the EBPV heats the motor up by closing the butterfly valve in the turbo, By removing it you will have more flow out of the exhaust. You could just unplug the harness that goes into the pedistal. Then it will never come on and you wont have to worry about it and hear it anymore. I use mine it as a exhaust brake with a switch, it closes the valve causing the rpms to drop and loose speed coming down hills with trailers.

Re: EBPV delete?

Is it basically a mix between an EGR and choke to help the motor warm up?

I've seen housings and plug adapters for this and it seems that if the aftermarket has parts for it, it must yield some gains worth mentioning but at what cost?

Thanks for the quick reply.

close.. basically it's just a choke. down here in texas we dont neeed it much so i deleted mine when i toasted the old turbo. not too hard to do, there should be a post somwhere with instructions and pics. the benifit is it gives you a little more exhaust flow and you dont have to worry about it closing on you for no reason.. which has happened to a few strokers some people just unplug it from the actuator and wire it open, but that just keeps it from closing, you dont get the extra room in your exhaust.

Here some stuff Maintain poasted...the 6th video down tells you how to gut and plug the EBPV if you want to go that route.

Dave, you can just unplug yours and not worry with the gutting.

Re: EBPV delete?

I'll have to look into it. I am looking at swapping in a new turbo and saw this as an option on some of the housings.

Does it cause issues disconnected in the cold mornings say, like, in North Dakota? It's freaking cold up there and I'll be there in a year.

Thanks guys

Dave

Re: EBPV delete?

It doesn't make a huge difference in warm up, but it helps some. What I did on mine was cut the wire and put it on a switch. If I want it on, I turned the switch on. As long as the switch is of, it can't come on. That way I can also use it as an exhaust brake.

WOW...that sounds like a crackerjack of an idea. I don't need the extra air flow but the fact it won't slam shut and getting a little extra whoa up when needed is cool.

Re: EBPV delete?

That sounds cool too. Poor mans Jake brake.....sort of. If North Dakota had hills, I'd consider it. It's too flat there and that's where I'll be.

Thanks for the inputs guys. I think I'll just keep it the way it is and go with a replacement turbo. I'm not looking to spend everything I have to get every hp out of my DD here. I have a racecar for that. Great educational value here though.
