Exhaust gas temp sensor

Hi there,
I have a 2008 F350 with a dpf delete and a spartan tuner. The gage for the EGT on the spartan tuner is kinda bouncing all over the place. I've been told that it is my sensor gone in my truck is that true????
If so are they hard to change out or is it something I should have ford do?
Thanks as always for the feed back everyone.

Pull the passenger side wheel well and it's right there in the up pipe.

Elite Max-Power turbos are only the start

Re: Exhaust gas temp sensor

I was always instructed to use the manifold so you can see what your temps are pre-turbo, but I have seen them post turbo.

this is the 6.4 forum so u may not get too many replies, but i have a 6.0. the best place to put it is pre turbo, in the drivers manifold. if u dont wanna, u can put it in the dp. it just means that if ur dp reading is 1000*, pre turbo is about 1250**, and that shouldnt be sustained for long periods. so try to stay under 1000*.
