Decided to go with an SCT and have a few questions.

I am getting an SCT with Vivian's looney file. I am deleting the doc an the dpf and also the muffler but I am doing I myself just buying all the pipe. What do I have to do with the stock EGT probe? Can I drill a hole in my pipe and stuff it there? Not sure what to do?!

You don't have to worry about the egt probe. It's not in the exhaust

I'm not sure what it is. But it's not the egt sensor

If I remember right, those 4 sensors in your pipe don't have to physically be in the pipe, but they need to be hooked up for SCT to work. I think many tie them up out of the way. I bought exhaust with bungs and just put them back in.

You are also starting separate threads with questions relating to the same thing.

As for the exhaust... Again... It will make your life MUCH easier to buy a pre fabed pipe WITH bungs. As others have stated in order for the SCT to work you are going to need the exhaust sensors to be hooked up.

The sensors you are seeing are NOT EGT probes. They monitor volume of exhaust flow fro proper function of the DPF. Essentially...

i agree with silvertj. buying an exhaust is the easiest route.

if you have fab experience i guess material cost is probably around 150 bucks so the savings might be around 200 dollars if you dont mind the time and labor.

Hey them sensors are for doc inlet and out let temps and dpf temp, the other is a differential pressure sensors which is what us used to let the ecm know when to do regen, the temp sensors are to let it know how hot each is getting so it can dose fuel to burn out the soot. Just fyi.
