EBP Tube and sensor

I took the ebps off the tubing and it was clean as a pin so I put it back on thinking it was in good shape. Now I`m wondering since the sensor is so clean if the tubing is stopped up. Should I be getting at least signs of a little soot? TIA.

tube

You will find that it is not that hard to take off if you can get it broke loose of the exhaust side. After that, even if you are a novice, it is worth the 15-20
min of taking it off and checking it out.

I cleaned my sensor and tube n got a 3MPG INCREASE!!

I just pulled mine and cleaned it. It was easy to remove, but a pain to get the soot out of the tube. I did have a lot of build up. Hope it helps the fuel mileage. I replaced the ICP also. An extra 3 MPG would be great.

Also if you gut or unplug your ebpv then you don't have to worry about cleaning the tube anymore
