I would put a pipe plug in the exhaust manifold and you could either put the dongle SP diesel sells on the end or leave it connected to the inoperative sensor. My EBPV is gone and that sets an P0475 error code (something about the solenoid for the EBPV) but my tube and sensor are intact so I have mine hooked up and it reports the manifold pressure to AE and the PCM etc. I Use this as a poor man's drive pressure indicator (Manifold pressure -1 atm = drive pressure. I do not think the PCM will defuel with in the absence of the EBPV. Wonder how high the manifold pressure gets with the EBPV closes? Highest drive pressure I have seen with the H2e is 38 psi with boost of 33 psi.
