Old Pyro Sensor Hole

I'm doing some preliminary planning/research before I buy a DPF kit. The guy who had the truck before me put a Bullydog PMT on it (why he would do that with a DPF still in line is beyond me) and he mounted the pyro sensor in the exhaust right at the elbow before the cat. Install directions say to mount Pre-turbo I believe- Regardless, when I (hopefully) sell this PMT, I will take the pyro sensor and give it to the new owner. And I will be left with a hole in my exhaust.

What should I do about the hole? Weld it? Screw a bolt into it? leave it?

PS, who has the best price on a Spartan+DPF+CAT kit?

Thanks

The plug will work fine I've done it to 6 of my trucks when I got rid of them. Do your research before you purchase from any vendor because the price doesn't matter if the service sucks.

I just put a bolt in mine. Before I did though you couldn't drive the thing on the road. It sounded like it was gonna fall the heck apart when you stepped on it with that hole being there
