Move your mouse over any letters in green and a little box to pop up saying what they mean.

You wont be "taking it off" you will be removing the valve out of the exhaust side of the turbo, and also plugging the hole where the rod comes out of the pedistal that moves the valve open and closed. To do it right you will have to remove the turbo.

No the valve in located in this piece between the turbo and the downpipe.


Here's what my old pedistal looks like after being modded, this one is currently on catrebels truck.


I dont have any pics of removel or install or of my new pedistal.

You remove the turbo, and the valve is connected to a rod that comes out of the turbo pedistal.


If you do a search there's prolly a thread on here explaining how to do it.

I bought a part that bolts in place of the ebpv housing and then you dont have to destroy the ebpv housing. Never know when those things will be of use or become an expensive part that people want.
