Replacment EBPVS tube

I cleaned out my EBPV sensor and tube the other day and it was very very clogged with soot. I cleaned out the sensor as best I could but I'm pretty sure there is still lots of junk in there. The tube was also packed full and I cleaned it out but noticed that there is a small hole and maybe a crack on the tubing.
So I was wondering where is a good/cheap place to get replacements from, including any bundle deals. The bracket/connecting piece (that the sensor screws into and the tubing screws into on the other side) is also very clogged and packed so hard that I could barely knock away a small air passage through the center. So I would like to replace that as well, though I couldn't find a place that sells that particular piece.
I have a 99 F350 CC LB 4x4. I'm not sure if my truck is an early or late 99. The build date on the door says 5/99 but I was reading up on it in another thread and I have the square U-bolts on my front axle and my radiator does not have the transmission cooler in it, it is a separate piece, which are both supposed to be signs that it is an early 99. Though the build date would suggest that it is a late 99.
Any help is much appreciated

You can pick up the tube at Oreilly auto Dorman makes a replacement for sensor I would stick with OEM through one of the vendors on here. Done remember the size but you can use a drill bit to clean out the fitting. I would start with replacing the tube and trying the sensor especially if you have a CTS or AE that can monitor it to see if working.

As for E vs L99 easiest way to tell is look at your turbo compressor housing does it have 4 or 5 bolts if 4 you have E99, there are other items such as the AIH, Plenum size ect.. but the turbo is quickly and easily verified.

I'm not sure what bolts exactly I'm looking for. Which side of the turbo?
Also I do have an AIH. I'm actually really curious to figure out which I have because I want to do a coolant flush and change over to ELC but from what I understand you cant do that if you have an early 99 because you will get leaks from seals or gaskets or something.

you have a late 99.
my trucks build date is 01/99, which means i have late model motor but early model front end parts. your truck is all late 99 parts. so you can use elc.

a new ebpv tube is only like 36 bucks on ebay, pretty cheap.

I was curious if anyone knew of any combo or bundle deals to get them cheaper. I heard that if the sensor is very clogged you should replace it.

03/99 was the cutoff for early model frond end components. so 05/99 is all newer stuff.

no combo kit really, just dont buy from ford, they charge a lot

Ok, Thanks.
On a side note, what does driving with a hole in the tube do? Like is it really bad on the engine, or just something that should get fixed sooner rather than later?
