Sensors

What sensors are the hardest to get out of stock DPF & CAT pipe. I'am going to be getting my tuner & delete pipe later this week. I would like part numbers if you have them please. Thanx in advance...I may just get some new ones & leave the old ones in stock pipe....

Edit, sorry, go to page one on this link

Getting new ones would def be easier. I guess it just depends on how much they cost.

Just depends. The pressure sensor can be really hard to get out, but so can the temp sesnors

They really aren't THAT bad. Or at least mine weren't. Ya, it was a little tough, but not like it was impossible by any means. You'll get it!

How many miles do you have on your truck? I pulled my DPF out with around 6,000 miles and had absolutely no problem getting all the sensors out with a pair of vice-grips.

Do yourself a favor and buy a 13mm flare nut wrench. Should have no problem getting the sensors out. If the flare nut wrench don't get it you have bigger problems.
