Exhaust Back Pressure Valve.. Does it work?

I have read a lot of back and forth about the EBPV delete. Some say you should keep it in cold weather and some say it doesn't really help. Looking for advice from people in colder reigons like my home sweet home Montana. Thanks fellas

Not needed. Delete it. I'm from colorado and it gets into the negatives and I have no issues.

You might, but really it's just another failure and leak point.

I love in Maine, negative temps are common like others have posted. My truck didn’t have the valve plugged in sense I bought it. Good glow plugs, fuel bowl heater, clean fuel system, and diesel additive. My truck startes extremely well. I just let it warm up for about 5min before I drive it.

That OBS Life

Re: Exhaust Back Pressure Valve.. Does it work?

I use mine as an exhaust brake. Otherwise I would delete it. I live in Idaho where sub zero isn't uncommon. I just wait until my oil temp is around 100 degrees or so. Probably way too excessive tho...

95 Auto. 4.10 gears. SCLB. Stock besides Baby Swamps Injectors and TS-6 chip with swamps tunes. AFE MaxFlow. Glowshift trans, pyro, and boost. 6.0 IC KC TP38R. Converted EBPV to exhaust brake.

Sounds like A resounding "Delete it". I unplugged the wires because it was acting up. Thanks to all for the advice
