Gutting EBV

I've seen people gutting the EBV and I have a stupid question surrounding this. What are the benefits and draw back in gutting the ebv? I'm having to replace leaking oil seal around my turbo, I figre I'm already there might as well. I just didn't know what the purpose was other than better flow but what draw backs there were in doing this.

Seems like more a of a hassle to remove it for what you get out of it if that made sense. I understand making the restriction of air flow but just seems like a lot for work for not much gain. Am I off on that?

Some people will remove anything that looks like an obstuction, like this piece and the IAH, IIRC.

A "gain" if you will, is that you can do it at a time of your choosing. When the EBPV leaks, it could be at the time most inconvenient to you. In my case, it was the middle of winter.

If you have a stock truck - you will not likely get any benefit from gutting the EBPV. When you start to open up things like intake, larger turbo / housing. exhaust, then there can be a benefit from eliminating it.

Also, keep in mind that when the valve is open, the plate is parallel with the air flow. The airflow is spinning and so it it a greater air disturbance then just the reduced outlet area.

Eliminating this piece can lower drive pressures and lower EGTs.

I used to use mine for the brake and for manual activation to keep the engine warm while sleeping in the winter in the - worked great for this. I cannot say how much removing it impacted my engine as I put a new turbo on at the same time. maybe not that much - but when towing at 105F, i'll take any reduction in EGTs!
