Question Exhaust Sensor replace with bolt, what size?

I'm going to be installing my Flo-Pro 5" exhaust this afternoon, and they sent me one with the bungs for the exhaust sensors. I don't feel like waiting another two weeks to send it back and have a new one shipped without the bungs.

Does anybody know the bolt size and thread count that will fit in the bungs?
Just trying to save some time here.

Thanks!!

Found out the info on another forum thought I'd share it here, the post was from Rudy's.

OEM Ford EGT sensor 12x1.25mm
OEM Ford pressure /nipple/fitting 14x1.25mm
My pressure sensor nipple 1/8 NPT (Rudy's)

Glad you found them. You could always just take the sensors off the dpf and put them in the bungs of the delete pipe then just don't hook em up. Thanks for sharing the info

True, I thought of that too. But two of the sensors are seized in there like a mutha F***!! I tried thread penetrator and heating the bung etc, no way! And since I don't need them I opted for the bolts. In saying that, good luck finding a M14-1.25!! I went to all hardware and industrial fastener stores and automotive stores, no dice. Only thing I found was a M14-2.0, So I taped the pressure sensor bung and no worries!

Yeah those things can be a real *itch to get out when they've been in there for awhile. Well I'm glad you found a solution and it figures no one has those sizes. EPA probably banned manufacturers from making that size lol
