Default Obs

I don't believe the OBS has an AIH??.

I also put T&S chip in a couple years ago and I honestly do not believe it ever went into a high idle on it's own prior to chip and it definitely doesn't after chip when in stock position.

Definitely never performed like the bone stock 01ex does presently at warm up. The Ex acts as you all describe.

So if the pedestal needs to come off either way for the delete or rebuild/replace then I still need to decide.

Anyone know the resource for the $60 rebuild???

Default Great site

Thanks N2,
Great site. Did you see you can buy a complete Garrett pedestal without EBPV for only $107. Unfortunately that part not available for OBS.

I didn't realize it only works at idle. I guess my real concern is changeover times. Plugged in and 2.5 miles is a really attractive situation. I'd really like. To maintain that as standard.

So the diff between $169 for rebuild kit vs $385 for new vs Delete. Considering labor time. If I tap pedestal for delete than later I guess I'd definitely be getting new one to go back to EBPV.

The deleted pedestal for your OBS is here, and the outlet valve here.

OBS is higher!! I was still off - the late 7.3 was $98! I didn't think we paid that much for Frank's last summer...

I WOULD NOT buy a non-EBPV pedestal. Make yours non-EBPV with a tap and plug. Return to stock by removing plug and installing the rebuild kit. The hole that gets tapped will not affect future use of the actuator.

The outlet adapter is less work than removing the valve from the stock adapter and may be worth it if ya don't have easy access to a welder/welding machine.

Again, the EBPV only helps the truck warm up faster while parked. If you plug in block heater, then just run the truck a couple minutes before driving - you won't miss the EBPV. If you didn't plug in and let truck idle until 'warm' - you would notice a big difference in warm-up and likely switchover times.

Thanks Vandy,

Just returned from 1,795 mile trip from BC, burning D2 in the 01 ex, what a great ride, first big rd trip in that rig, I did lose the alternator, but managed to limp into Cranbrook BC for a quick swap out. Played chicken with the hills and low voltage for 60 miles to get there!!!!! Luckily, Mrs was asleep, so she couldn't sense my anxiousness, tense a couple moments when I knew it was running off batteries climbing hills, and all the gages would start to fail!

ANYWAYS, BUMPING THIS THREAD FOR ANY MORE INPUT, before I decide what to do. Still not sure but need to get back to burning grease fast and I'm experiencing vacation hangover with a whole pile of s*^t waiting and even less time now for wrenching until I get caught up.
