Exclamation Sensors plugged into Dpf

So I am planning on deleting my 6.7l... i havnt been under the truck yet to look at the dpf exhaust completely. But from what i hear there are three sensors plugged into that dpf. When i take off that dpf and straight pipe the truck what happens to the sensors and harness? Do they just unplug... should i tuck them up and away from everything once the straight pipe is on? What do i do?

they unplug from the dpf there is also a couple egt gauges than u can use with H&s delete or block off plates . and all of the wiring is tied into the fram by connectors etc just zip tie it up and out of the way . it is not a bad ordeal at all 2 hours tops wd-40 and a basic set of ratchets and ur done .

they are EGT(exhaust gas temperature) sensors, the truck uses them to regulate DPF and REGEN. If you just unhook them the truck may not start unless you get them tuned out. I work at a ford garage but have never deleted them, just replaced them. Have fun getting them out by the way lol

basically make it need and clean lol its simple i did the dpf delete with a crawler and a couple wrenches and the egr blocker plates with even less lol when u do the tuning be sure to unplug BOTH egr connections there is one the egr it self its orange cant miss it and the other is on the drivers side under the intake its a smaller plug still orange be sure both get unplugged to prevent damage to the butterfly valve

just unplug them and leave them in the exhaust. Wrap the ends from the truck with some electrical tape. H&S was thinking of making dummy plugs for the ends to keep them clean, but I don't think it happened. There are more than three, I think 7.

So pretty much what I have gotten is unplug them, wrap em with something to keep em clean and zip tie/tuck em away from everything, then obviously unplug egr, then tune h&s delete? I'm not doing a egr blocking plates. Ill prob tap exhaust manifold instead. Or whatever is recommended.
