Exclamation Quick Question

If I have my EBPV unhooked then do I need to attach the rod back up to the EBPV valve or is it ok to leave it off?

Re: Quick Question

Correct me if I am wrong, but the rod should have 10lbs pressure to hold the valve open. The valve itself has no sping pressure to keep it open. If you left the rod disconnected, you would need to wire the valve in the open position. I gutted mine completely. Wish someone would come up with a DP that deletes it and has a slower bend right after the turbo.

Re: Quick Question

I believe if you leave the rod hanging you will end up with a oil leak as the piston is now cocked in the bore. I would not let it hang if it was me.

Re: Quick Question

Mine started leaking almost right away after just leaving it hanging.

Re: Quick Question

I cut my rod off stuck it back in and plugged the hole with a 1/4" pipe plug. Ain't had no trouble yet out of it.

I did the same thing. As I was not sure exactly how the oil circuit worked, I did not want to risk dumping the turbo's oil supply back to the sump. I cut the rod and reassembled the EBPV actuator with a pipe plug in the hole. I then pulled the plate and shaft out and sealed the lower hole with a 1/2 inch bolt and nut.

Works well.

huh? 4" better flow? now you lost me. I put a bigger turbo on, not to mention the stock obs turbos have what is called a wicked wheel in the first place, and I put the new o rings on with the d66.

Re: Quick Question

With the banks power elbow you do away with the EBPV completely. this brings your turbo outlet and down pipe up to 4". The pedestal upgrade does away with the leaking actuator and then you need the plug in chip for the end of the actuator wire
