spray them with penetrating lube now. The front EGT sensor is easy, the middle one is a little tight, and the back one is a PITA. The pressure sensor is easy, but be careful not to break it.

Im in just about the same boat, going to do a full turbo back exhaust install this afternoon and dont want to mess anything up. Will spraying lube help my chances of not breaking a sensor?

Lubing them up a little while before you do the job will definitely help get them out easier. Also....when you go to put the sensors back in don't tighten them down hard. Just do a good finger tighten. That way if you ever need to take them out again, it will go nice and smooth!

Good to know. I will keep that in mind because I have a feeling this will be coming off around inspection time. I am really excited to unleash this trucks power!

I believe that we can get them for you cheaper than the dealership if you want to give the office a call and get some pricing.
