EBPV gutting

After you remove the housing is there a gasket between the housing and the exhaust housing that I will need to replace? I have also read threads about gutting this and some show cutting of the pedisol. Just curious why this is being done? It shows some kind of actuator being removed from the pedistol.
Im going to be doing this mod this week and want to make sure I have all the parts I will need.

Thanks, Matt

There is no gasket in there iirc. I did the pedestol mod on mine, I removed the actuator and the cylinder as you mentioned and welded the holes up. You can just remove the actuator and put a pipe plug in there but it's still hard to get to that one turbo bolt. Lots easier to remove/install turbo without that thing on there. It is aluminum so if you do it you need to know that. I'll see if I can find a link for you.

I pulled the housing, cut out the valve, and plugged the hole. Three 12 point bolts holding it on IIRC. I want to do the pedestal as well but haven't had the desire to get in there and fight those dang bolts.

IF you remove the pedestal, for sure you will need two of this o-rings for it:
Turbo Pedestal O-Rings (between pedestal & block; pedestal & turbo)fficeffice" />>>
(Ford) F4TZ-6N653-A & F4TZ-6N653-B
(International) 1815560C1 Turbo to pedistal O-ring .421 x .560
(International) 1815561C1 Turbo to pedistal O-ring .769 x .908

What is the advantage of gutting the EBPV?

Less restriction (it blocks about a 20%), less EGTs.(20-50 IIRC) and if you mod the pedestal no oil leaks there in the rod and better work when unistall your turbo.

so there is no advantage other than easier turbo removal by cutting the actuator off correct?

not really, just sooo much easier to do the turbo and you don't have to worry about it leaking. Plugging it will not let it leak, but the turbo still sucks...

Well is not just cutting the actuator you have to mod the pedestal. Luck the pics below (stock and after mod).
