Exhaust Pressure Sensor Do Anything?

Last night when I was putting on my exhaust, the little tube for my pressure sensor broke. I tried glueing it back on but it wouldn't stay. I just plugged the sensor back in to the harness and left the tube off. Does this affect anything other than a small exhaust leak (which you can't even hear)? Should I be running to the dealer monday morning to order a new one? My truck runs great and no codes or anything.

When you do a DPF Delete, you do not need the pressure sensor. It has to be connected to the wiring harness, but does not have to be in the pipe. You can just put a plug into the pipe. You might want to get another one in case you ever have to go back to stock though.

Wooh! That's a relief. I didn't figure it did anything in there anyways since there wasn't pressure there anymore. Thanks for the info!

I broke mine when I did my delete over a year ago. Glued it back when I had to go back to stock, then it broke again when I did the delete again. I think the spacing is off between the whole and the bracket on my pipe.

I think mine was actually broke already. As soon as I backed the nut off that holds the bracket on, it just fell off. Also the sensor that was in my stock exhaust was cross threaded. It took a lot of convincing and messing up of a lot of threads to get it out. It still had the top 4 threads that were good so I put it back in. My three EGT sensors came right out. I was really worried about them being hard by the way everyone was talking but it didn't take anything to get them out. My truck is only a few weeks old though. I really hope I never have to put the DPF back on. It wasn't extremely difficult, but there was nothing fun about it.
