I first removed my bushwackers and inner fender well lining and I just cut my wheel hard to the right.....it would be best to remove the wheel for added room.
Now keep in mind Ive already did the EGR delete and the uppipe that connects to that system you dont need and I think you should go ahead and do this mod as you are doing that awful EGR delete.
Anyway.......The block off plate provided when i did the egr delete I removed and set aside.Then i moved to the top where this uppipe connects(image below. there are 4 10mm bolts that have to be removed.HOWEVER i recommend to leave the 2 bolts that are side by side on the bracket that holds the upper uppipe as it will help hold it while you sawzall it. I didnt do this and i had to stop and put them back in) Its really tight and i pulled the tube from my S&B intake to give me arm room[IMG][/IMG]

Heres the lower part of the pipe that the block of plate was connected to. here is where you have to disconnect where the EBP sensor tube hooks into the uppipe. I then took a sawzall and cut about 4 or 5 inches back from where this EBP tube screwed into.

Once i cut the first cut I had to cut another time to get it wiggled out. it almost 90s at the top and there is not way to just drop it out or pull it out from the top. heres where i cut again with the sawzall. THe skinnier the sawzall the better. i was able to take mine over the top of the steering linkage or whatever you want to call it. Heres where you also need to remove the bracket that holds the actual EBP sensor to get it out of your way just in case you hit it.

Earlier i said to remove those 4 10mm bolts at the top.... I ended up putting the two back in that are on the bracket of the up pipe. they are the two that are side by side, just to help solid up the pipe as the sawzall cuts. Once that cut is made you can pull it down thru the fender well and lift the remaining piece up and then back down thru the fender well also. then you have this

I took the EBP tube hookup piece to the vicr and unscrewed thte fitting which im going to reuse. I dont know if thats a good idea or not, but im going to roll with it. my ebp sensor is also in good shape.I am going to take the EGR block off plate and drill and tap the threads in it and install this fitting back in. Then rig up some wiring so it will reach the new location of the EBP piping. Havent done that part yet. Waiting on my dad to bring his taps over. 1/4" NP

The current fitting is threaded to 1/4" NPT (pipe thread), so you'll need a pipe tap to mount that fitting in your plate. I reused my existing fitting and tube initially, but decided to replace it with a flare fitting that the sensor could mount directly on, instead of using the small tube.

Looking good though. I think you ran into some of the exact same issues that I did when I did this. It's a long process, but it's not as bad as removing the EGR in the first place.
