Up pipe removal advice

Long story short I went to change the egr temp sensor in the passenger up pipe on my friends 08 6.4 and the sensor broke off in the bung. Trying to extract it in the vehicle doesn't seem very easy.

I'd like to remove the pipe but can it be done without cab or trans removal?

Any tips/tricks apreciated!

Does the truck have an EGR? If not, you can cut the pipe out and relocate the sensor.

Yeah it has egr... totally stock truck. Regardless the way the sensor is now it will leak exhaust so I have no choice but to address the old one first. Thx for the reply.

If it was deleted you can relocate it and get rid of that pipe. You can really only do a new uppipe. That's a cab off job or drop the tranny.
Search for sensor relocation and egr uppipe removal. I have a thread on it with the help of Bryan.

That wont work for what he is talking about. The sensor he broke off is in the passenger side up pipe. Its the one that reads the egt's. The sensor you guys relocated is the EBP sensor. That is the one in the egr crossover pipe. Even if his egr was deleted you can not get rid of the passenger side up pipe.

Honestly bud I am not sure if you can take that pipe off without removing the cab or transmission. If possible I would imagine its extremely difficult. Let us know what you do
