VGT sensor Where is it?

Ive recently saw some youtube videos showing 6.0s blowing alot of black smoke because they unplugged the vgt sensor. What does a vgt sensor do and where is it located. Is it bad to unplug it?? Thanks

I unplugged mine and it just sounded like a non-turbo powerstroke. no smoke and a hell of a lot less power. The only way they are blowing so much smoke is with programmers. in stock form it doesnt do a thing.

I found that you get too much lag when you stack bags, it's known by the big HP guys as "bag lag"
