yeah you can run it with it unpluged. i removed mine after the tube went bad and i removed the Exhaust back pressure valve. replacement one if you want one= salvage, or dealer. dont know of any other company making them.

the engine should run normally. my truck ran better with it unplugged because the sensor was messed up and sending false signals to the Comp. im not 100% sure on the metal line but im almost sure that yes you will have to get that from Ford.

That should be it. I completely understand breaking things like that...I broke my ICP sensor while replacing a $20 fuel line. That turned into a $120 fuel line!
