Re: EBPV delete question and P0475
I did the same.. Gutted the EBPV valve cylinder, but I tapped the hole in the front of the housing for a 1/4 pipe thread and plugged it. I also kept the plug in, so far so good. I initially left the piston and valve in place. You would not beleive how much oil floods out of the front of that cylinder when the engine was running. I lost about 2 quarts of oil on the floor. looking at the piston and spring/seal setup... that's the worst design I could imagine for an oil sealing appplication. I bet every one of those leak in service.
