Bought a Spartan

I was reading the sticky on this, and it says to install the sensors, then farther on it says not to. So...do I install the sensors? The pipe has bungs on it. I got a great deal (I believe) on a used Spartan and delete pipe, but don't plan on installing until this weekend. Anything else I need to know? I am working on the registry currently. Thanks

You don't need to use the sensors anymore, take them out and plug them or just install the sensors and be done with it, either way the Spartan will still work.

good to hear. I might have to plug them with the sensors, unless there is a place to pick up the bung bolts?

Take a sensor in a hardware store and match the thread size.

While the sensors are no longer required for the Spartan, why not just install them in the delete pipe (seeing as you have one with the bungs already)? That way to don't loose/ damage the senors, don't get dirt in the electrical connectors for them by driving around with them unplugged and you wouldn't have to go buy plugs for the holes.

I am still under warranty, so my plan is to leave them in the DPF and not worry about stripping them out when I take them out. AFE makes a kit that matches them perfect for $15, I would rather spend $15 on the bolts then strip a sensor and have to spend a butt load. Thanks though for the input.

Not a bad idea.
