when i drilled mine i left the engine running and it seemed to blow them all out. i also installed mine in the y pipe. there was a flat area that looked like it was made for it. also, it was easy with the doghouse off on a van.

dip the drill bit in grease, then do the same with the tap. Then use a small magnet in the hole before installing the probe. The exhaust houseing and turbine are pretty stout so no worry's even if ya miss one or two flakes.

you dont have to dip it in vasaline or grease. i would advise against that actually. your better off doing it with the engine off. when you drill you will notice 99% of the shavings fall in your face. then vacuum it real good just to be sure. you will be fine.

I'm getting ready to do this myself. The instructions that came with mine say to have the engine running. It seems to me that the sensor goes pretty far into the manifold. Wouldn't this cause some flow restriction? I've been thinking about removing the manifold and drilling it then welding an 1/8" pipe coupler around the hole thus having just the tip of the sensor in the manifold. If done this way what gaskets will I need? Oops! Didn't see this was in the 7.3 forum. I'm runnin' an 05 6.0.
