Exhaust back pressure sensor eliminator

I want to make my own does anyone know what resistors I need and the wiring schematic for one? My factory sensor is broke at the connector. I really dont want to spend $100 for a new sensor and would really like to just make my own eliminator.

97' F250 Powerstroke Isspro boost gauge, flat bed.
In the Works... Custom running boards, and front bumper. Built by me!
Soon will have a down pipe, and possibly tunes or an ECU reflash.

OHH yeah. I changed mine a while back. Spent the money cause I thought I had to. It is right in front of the engine below the fuel filter. It is a sensor pointing down connected to a metal tube which goes to the underside of the engine. I ended up replacing mine along with cleaning out the tube (they get clogged with soot, causing high backpressure readings i converted a reading from a scanner and found that mine was reading 55psi of backpressure when it should be about 14). There is a writeup on here about how to clean the sensor and tube and save money IF the sensor isn't just shot. I really think I ruined my sensor when trying to clean it....... but I learned from it!

The sensor isn't needed unless you still use the EBPV, mine has been gone for a while.

I finally got rid of the code from popping up by buying the dongle

Get the Exhaust Backpressure Sensor Eliminator, it works wonders and is easy enough to install and is all enclosed
