The ICP sensor is near the front of the driver's side cylinder head on the inboard side, pretty much behind the A/C compressor.
Remove the air box, remove the intake "elephant trunk", and smash the sh!t out of that stupid resonator box with a hammer and a 2"x2" wooden block, if it's still there. That thing is a menace to maintenance. You don't need it. Just plug the hole on the side of the "elephant trunk with a spray paint can lid. Then tighten the clamp just enough to hold onto the turbo inlet pipe. Put a little grease on the inside edge, and when you insert it again, it will slip onto the turbo inlet pipe firm enough not to fall off. The next time you need to change your fuel filter or mess with your ICP, just unscrew the air box and set it aside, and grasp the trunk and tug it out of there. Makes maintenance a breeze.
Anyway, I wouldn't want to cut the factory harness if I could avoid it. You may have problems with the connection down the road. What you might be able to do is find the ICP wires where it goes through the engine wiring harness on the left side of the high pressure oil reservoir. It's easier to get to than the ICP sensor it's self.
