Depends on which tuner you choose.... Edge and SCT needs the bungs. Spartan and H&S do not--

I think it's better to get a tuner that doesn't require exhaust bungs, that way you can leave the probes in the factory exhaust and not have to why about swapping them over and possibly damaging them. Just my .02

Get a kit without bungs as they are not necessary with the H&S tuners. You can leave the sensors in the factory pipes and just disconnect them, very simple to do. The DPF/Cat will slide out in one piece. Let us know if we can help with anything.

The only H&S tuner that is back ordered is the Black Maxx. They are currently working on a new version of it. The H&S Mini Maxx is by far our most popular tuner and what we recommend most.

I like having the bungs because I can return my truck to stock tune and run it with no CEL because all sensors are in place. No need to put the DPF back on to take to shop for repairs or service. Have done DPF delete both ways. I always try to remove the temp sensors from the DPF anyhow when removing/installing it because they are so fragile and I don't want to catch them on something and break them. Once I took mine out the first time I put a good coat of high temp anti-seize on them and they come out easy now!

I use an SCT Livewire Extreme and the latest tune revision has the option of deleting sensors (No-bungs) or keeping them (WITH bungs) so you can choose either or.

I have the H & S Tuner. the exhaust kit I purchased did not have the bungs (where the sensors would normally be installed) as some kits do. I read posts on various forums where the sensors are not required when using H & S. Correct to a certain point. One can not reset "Check Engine" with the sensors removed. I have had this happen. I was instructed, the sensors have to be plugged into the wiring harness to make this correction. After doing this, I was able to reset the "Engine Check" light. One has to change the H & S setting to stock which pretends the stock exhaust (DPF, CAT) system is still there. Now reset the H & S to delete and "Check Light" automatically resets. I taped the threaded portion of the sensor fitting to prevent damage and zip tied the sensor out of harms way.

SO, the question remains, can i get one with bungs and plug them, if necessary? I'm not to sure what you are talking about by the the CEL coming on, and resetting that, or do i need to put the sensors in the new exhaust systems, I'm lost now
