Cleaned the EBP tube!

Just wanted to post my results... wow not sure if it's all I'm my head our not but what a difference! I've even driven it a few days now and still think it's way better. I hope I see the mpg gain that folks have motioned too. It cleared up my idle a bit, truck pulls harder when I accelerate. I cleaned it long ago when I first bought the truck but it had plugged back up over the last 4 years. Mine was plugged only at the connection up top, the rest of the tube seemed clean -I made sure with a piece of wire. So if you've lost some power and mpg and can't figure it out, take a look at your EBP tube and sensor. Welcome to guzzle's Exhaust Backpressure Sensor Cleaning Maintenance Web Page

Hope this helps someone!

This post motivated me to do mine. Took about an hour, it was super easy and definitely full of crud. Glad I did it.

I can't get mine off at the exhaust manifold. It acts like it is stripped. Anyone else had this problem?
