    I would try to get the new Borg Warner EPC to replace the original Bosch EPC. They should be available now?

    And yes, as long as you are going to replace the EPC, spend a couple of bucks for the upgraded bracket.

    It actually isn't that difficult to drop the valve body. I did the Ford TSB upgrade and replaced the valve body gaskets. The original valve body gaskets were brittle as hell.

    The EPC that I installed was a sample "prototype" EPC from Borg Warner. I do not know if it is available for purchase. The upgraded bracket was from the dealer.
