Ok. If you've already gutted the pedestal then it doesn't matter. You can leave it plugged in or unplug it. The sensor isn't doing anything if you've removed the butterfly and rod assembly.

I asked the guy in the Ford Service Dept. when I took my truck in what was the most common thing they see going out on a high milage 7.3 engine and he said 'sensor'.

Are we talking about the same thing here?
