e99 ebv gutting

i have to replace all of my injector cups, so while i have her torn down, i was contemplating gutting my turbo pedestal,but im not sure if this is safe. has anyone else gutted theirs and left the sensor unplugged with no problems? or do i need to buy a non-ebv pedestal and new turbo flage and all that? any info is greatly appreciated. thanks

Re: e99 ebv gutting

wont hurt a thing as long as you unplug the sensor on the pedistal..delete the flang then you can delete the rod out of the pedistal..i just sold a 99.5 pedistal that was deleted..i may still have my early 99 pedistal that could be deleted some where around here..

That is a solenoid on the pedestal and there is no need to unplug it.

Re: e99 ebv gutting

hmmmm this is a copy and past from Bob at dieselsite

Q. If I disconnect the sensor, some say this will throw a code ,so they remove the turbo, cut the actuator rod off, and tap the hole in the pedestal and put a plug in it with the sensor still plugged. Is this "ok" to do?

A. If you simply plug the hole and leave the sensor plugged in, you may cause yourself the loss of a turbo from lack of oil flow. Let me explain. The same feed port that feeds the turbo bearing is feeding the EBV piston. There is one supply port and one return port in the pedestal. When the EBP sensor sends the signal to the pedestal to shut the valve,which is not there in this case, the oil dumps off to the return port in the pedestal with no resistance. This is the same return port as the one for the turbo. The piston separated the two when it is was properly used from the factory. Basically, while the valve is being actuated or attempted to in your case the turbo gets no oil or very little. The turbo bearing is the highest place in the engine for oil to travel and it will follow the path of least resistance. If you remove this piston in the pedestal, you MUST not allow computer control of the valve any longer. You must disconnect the sensor from the pedestal. Yes, you will get a code (not a light) telling you the valve is non-operational, but it's the only way to do it.

Re: e99 ebv gutting

I've seen that posted as a reference a few dozen times, it isn't correct.

Getting rid of the rod and flap in the outlet flange is the whole point of the gutting. I'd change it if I were doing it but a lot of people have gutted that too.

Re: e99 ebv gutting

How much gain is there in gutting it? I need mine for my decell tune and have no desire to do it but was just curious.

Re: e99 ebv gutting

If you calculate the area of the outlet with and without the shaft and flap, there is a lot of difference.
