EBP Tube & sensor swap out

Well I I got these codes yesterday:
EBP Tube & sensor swap out-imageuploadedbyautoguide1366332688.752395.jpg

I had low boost at take off, and was rolling coal nonstop like a dodge.. No power on take off. I cleaned the maf sensor- no better. So I took the ebp sensor off- it was full of soot / carbon, cleaned it all out. Ran the same. Bought a new ebp tube and sensor- I could get my wrenches on the lower fitting but could t break it lose for the life of me, soo changed the sensors out and it runs great again, better than before I got the codes.

I'd still like to swap out the tubes, but man there isn't a good angle to get in that area to break the nut loose. What's ur tips on getting that lose where it bolts up to manifold?

I've changed mine out about 5 times now. I get what I can from the top and the rest I do from the wheel well. I've got the same codes sometimes no boost other times I get 40 psi just cruising. Mine happens in the winter when its -20 or colder cause the tube freezes up since the egr is deleted. Sorry I don't have a better way to change it out its definitely a pain forsure

I just cleaned mine and I replaced the sensor took off the tube wasn't to bad but the fitting the tube goes into was so clogged up the hole was the size of a pencil tip couldn't get that fitting off so I scraped and cleaned the best I could until the hole opened up . Go through drivers side fender well take off the inner fender cover and you should have the best room you will get .

Are you talking about the fitting that the tube screws onto was plugged up? Also does either of you have a part number for the tube? I got a new sensor but not a new tube. Thanks

The tube comes with the sensor. So return the sensor if you can.
