What are you using to to keep factory sensor connections in good condition w/delete?

As the title states.

Had to go back to stock last week. When doing the switch back over, I am going to install plugs in the "sensor bungs"

What are you guys using to protect the factory connections when not using the sensors?

What about using the wife's anal lube and some electrical tape?

Bad idea?

I used DI grease. I then put a plastic sandwich bag over the connector and zip tied them closed to keep water and dirt out of the grease.

The zip tie is easier to get off than the heat shrink wrap and everyone has them in their kitchen!

Yes, especially if you live where they use salt/brine water on the roads. It will rot the connectors.

What about finding old sensor connections off of a wrecked truck and plugging them in then just trimming the wires? Any thoughts on this?

seems like it would be easier just to protect them from the get go

EDIT: i'm a dumbass, you mean taking the opposing ends, plugging them in and then cutting the wire. i really like this idea actually. good thinkin
