Re: ebpv question

Find a new mechanic.....the ECM does tell it when to open and close but it does not help make more boost. If anything you will make more power with it gone...if anything.

Run far from that guy.


The ebpv is used to aid the engine in warm up's.....nothing else.

Well you can use it as an exhaust brake, too.

Tried it and found it to not be worth the hassle. The hole where the rod come's out of the pedistal is a great spot for an oil leak if the valve get's stuck.

For some people it may have worked but for me it didn't work as well as I had read.

I use it like a exhaust brake and in my case it works fine for me, I suppose that the dedicated exhaust brakes MUST work better for sure but MORE way expensive.
