Not sure what your asking? The egr delete plate is pre turbo. Not good if you lost some metal and it dropped down in there? Remove the plate and fish with magnet

The tip (3.5") broke off inside the manifold somehow? It's been working for 2 months, all of a sudden this morning on my way to work it started reading egts that were not right so I drove it home pulled the sensor and the tip is gone!

If this thing gets to the turbo, im in trouble! Not sure how to get it out? I took the plate off and fished with a magnet as far as I could and nothing..

Well if you drove home who knows? The right answer would be to pull it all. I’d put the magnet on a wire and try to fish it around way more than a little pointer magnet can do

The real question is where did it go? Where can it go? Could it go in the head or through the turbo?

Well its the exhaust manifold so not going in cylinder so your ok. Goes through the hot turbo wheel and out exhaust. So only thing at risk is your turbo. Donít see that probe passing through that without damage but maybe. Donít think all the exhaust goes through turbo? Have to google the routing

Doesn't the exhaust come from the cylinder head into the hot side of the turbo? I was thinking it could fall in...?

Oh i see your thought process. No it wouldnít go against the exhaust flow or get through the valve opening. Only thing at risk is your turbo from damaging exhaust wheel blades

Not sure if the image will post correctly. My bet if it somehow hasn't made its way through the turbo is it is stuck at the 'elbow' leading to the upper hot side on your turbo.

I believe this image is from a pre-'15 style turbo so the setup may not be the same.
