Exhaust backpressure gauge

I would like to read exhaust back pressure,with my truck being and 04 it does not read correctly on the cts.I have a fitting in my up pipe ,but I thought I remember reading that the sensor would not be able to handle the heat.Is there any truth to this ? For those with 04s and back , are you tapping into the exhaust
sensor tube?

Thanks

From your up-pipe, you run a length of metal tubing (cooper or stainless) away from up-pipe, then coil the tubing to a fitting that accepts the sensor. Almost like the factory sensor, keeps the sensor away from direct heat.

JGS makes a particle trap for to keep the sensor clean and adds an extra port. I'm planning on running one with SS tubing with an edge sensor on the CTS.

Early models used 1/8 npt.. I used a 2" brass riser and then a T.. for my sending unit and the ebp sensor.. nor much difference between the two sensors other than the range...

I T off the ebp sensor. Gonna wanna make a filter of some sort so your sensor doesn't get plugged with carbon. Once it starts to get plugged....you'll have incorrect readings.

I've had my glow shift max tow 0-60 psi boost gauge rigged up to read EBP now for over a year and all I did was I cut about 1.5-2 inches out of the stock EBP sensing line, then put a brass compression T fitting to take up the gap, then I used the short piece I cut with another brass compression adapter to adapt it to 1/8 npt. It was super simple and works awesome so far. I don't have any heat or particulate issues.
