Exclamation DPF delete help emergency

When I went to install my Spartan delete pipe tonight I noticed one of the sensor fittings was damaged. It is the brass one right in the middle of the pipe. It looks like an air line fitting but Im not sure. It is different then the stock fitting so they are not interchangeable. Where can I get a replacement. I feal like such an idiot for not checking this before I took everything apart. My truck is in pieces now please help.

Herre are pics of what I am talking about.

Jason, that's a strange looking fitting. What attaches to it?

Yes that is just a typical brass fitting you can pick up at any good hardware store or tractor supply store.

Just take the damaged one with you when you go so you can compare and get the right fitting.

Oh if you can't find the fitting just contact Spartan. From what I hear there customer service is good and probably send you a new fitting.
