I feel for you buddy. I pulled my turbo (for the first time ever) this weekend to gain access to the ICP. My main goal was to plug my Commander into the ICP, but thought I may be able to swap out the ICP as well if it is leaking.
I wanted to know how to pull the turbo, so I went that route even though I was told previously how to get at the ICP from under the truck.
It turned out that my ICP was, in fact, leaking oil and in need of replacement. When I got the turbo out, I was able to reach back and unplug the ICP and plug in my HPOP gauge connector, but I didn't have enough clearance to get a wrench on the ICP to take it out, and I couldn't see the darn thing to visually inspect it either. When I reached back and touched it, it was all oily, and the connector and heat sleeve around it were also coated with oil. I could actually squeeze oil out of the heat sleeve.
So since I couldn't figure out how to get a wrench or socket on it from the topside and I needed my truck anyway, I put the turbo back in. Now I plan to find a good deal on a new ICP and connector, and try to swap them in from underneath the truck. I hope that I can jack the truck up enough so that I can actually sit upright to do the work.
I'm not looking forward to it. However, looking at the bright side, at least I now know the ICP needs replacement and I can do so before it actually causes me any running issues.
