hey guys new to the powerstrokes and i am wondering why is everyone removing the ebpv whats the pros and cons.
Hmmmm ok. Truck was not running when i unpluged it. Does it stay open with key off then close when truck is started?As long as you unplugged it when it was open, your good. Other than it is still there, no real problems other than an oil leak...maybe.
I'm sorry what........Its a pos design. It works on a stock truck, I guess. I got rid of mine and if I ever get another 7.3 truck, that pos will come off before I even get a tuner. Intake and exhaust on first day of ownership, when I do the exh Id ditch that thing.
Using it as an exhaust brake is ill-conceived. The valvetrain is not designed for that type bp. You'd have to have your cylinder heads fitted with stiffer springs for that which is a common performance upgrade, anybody looking for performance knows how backwards the valve is for performance.
