questions about icp and a parts retailer

my trucks an 03 6.0 and I've had a decent oil leak, leaking down onto my bell housing and I'm believing its the icp sensor. ive reached up behind that and there seems to be considerable amounts of oil up there and thats the highest trace of oil. But i havent been showing the icp code. I plan on changing out just the sensor and cleaning out the connector.

Does this seem like a good measure to take and has anyone ordered anything from "fordpartsdiscountoutlet"? It has really high shipping but the sensor is still only around 100 bucks.

When i get home from work i plan on an oil change, fuel filter change, changing icp sensor, new cut out grill, headlight conversion, and removing my stack while im under there and replacing it with a 5"
Recently had the serpentine belt changed.
What do you all think of that plan? I'm just excited to get home and get it done. I plan on piecing together an updated oil cooler, egr delete, studs, and new hgs but will be waiting till they actually go before i get into that headache.

Thanks!

Just clean the connector real well. Use some air to blow it out good and use some contact cleaner spray.
