re: Exhaust back pressure valve
My EBPV has been unplugged at the turbo (wiring) for about 2 years now with no problems. The valve was functioning all the time (when below 45*) and replacing the sensor, etc... did not help. I just unplugged the wiring at the valve and have had no problems since I live in Alabama.
As for the code. It will set a "soft" code that will not turn on the CEL.
