EBP sensor question

I am not having any problems with my EBP sensor but am anticipating the day that I do. I know the tube that goes from the manifold to the sensor has a tendancy to clog up and sometimes rust through.

What I am wondering is if you pull the tube off, put a plug in the manifold and leave the sensor wired up and on the engine just reading atmospheric pressure (0 psig) will this pose any problems?
Do you think I will get a code or CEL from it? I wouldn't think so since the wiring is still plugged into the sensor.
Is there anything within programming that uses EBP to adjust pulse width?

I know it would be a bad thing to do if you have a EBPV but mine is gutted.

What are your thoughts?

Re: EBP sensor question

Sometimes a bad EBP sensor won't even flash a CEL. The EBPV won't work right--but that won't be a problem for you.

Putting a substitue resistor for the sensor value in might be an easier way to go. LMK if you need the normal sensor range Eric. Hopefully somebody will chime in on pulse width with your chip.
