can someone put it in idiot terms for me?

I have the inevitable issue with my EBP sensor and tube.
I took them off to rid them of obstructive carbon build-up... and there is a hole in the pipe.
I have read (and read and read) on the board how I should go ahead and change the sensor when I change the tube - as a general rule. not a bad idea.
BUT I have also read about the EBP eliminator "dongle" and all the accompanying suggestions and chatter concerning the device.
In simple terms that someone who is still fairly ignorant of this 7.3 and diesels in general, would you learned and experienced fellows explain the benefit of the eliminator vs the sensor and tube?
If I'm going to spend some of my scant cash, I want to invest it wisely.
Do I have to "cap off" the manifold outlet where the tube went if I go the eliminator path?
Who sells the eliminator (by whatever names it goes by)?
and I read something about a similar bypass device that is plugged into the bypass actuator valve on the turbo pedistal... is this necessary also?
Hope I'm not being a bother.
Thank you,
Rev. Chris

Interesting.... I didn't even know there was a delete kit for it. I really doubt you would gain anything by deleting it though. I cleaned mine and just put it back on. If I were you I would probably just replace the tube and call it good.
