Serious stupid newbee question....

First off let me say Ive never had anything but gassers so Im as dumb as you can get so stop laughin and just answer the question
I m wondering what this is, it sits right next to the thermostat (2005 6.0) its brass, takes a 1" deep socket to remove it, has a electrical plug on top and a hard line on the bottom.
I removed it today changing out the thermostat. When I put it back in I noticed it did not seat all the way down against its bottom. But I was very carefull not to cross thread it and didnt want to break it off over musclein it. What is it ,what does it do and should it seat down tight... thanks!
Okay you can laugh now

Exhaust Back Pressure sensor. Originally used to help the computer make decisions on Turbo VGT vane settings and boost. No longer used by the VXCF9 strategy.

Mitch -

In May of 2006, the EBP input was eliminated in only the early model year engines/strategies (03 - 04.25). It is still used in the later model year engnes.

My understanding is that VXCF9 went to an inferred EBP strategy rather than using the EBP sensor. It is one of the reasons I will be rolling my strategy back from VXCF9 to VXCF4. This is based on my conversations with Bill Cohorn. There are other reasons but this is one.
