that something as expensive as the oxygen sensor and exhaust gas temperature probe are just left hanging from the down pipe after you do delete's. I even bought the connector plugs just in case I wanna put back to stock for going in for repairs but it didn't even come with the connectors for them. I would have thought spending the extra 50 bucks to get the wire connector plugs they would have been part of the package!!!
If you're opting for just a "DPF delete" with sims, the oxygen sensors can be left plugged into the vehicle harness so there isn't a need to plug those. The EGT sensors for the most part are removed with the delete pipe and the plugs for the body harness are available.
If you're doing a delete with a Smarty or H&S product, then there is no need to leave the sensors hanging from the down pipe they should be removed, and again, the plugs for the body side plugs are available.
When you remove the sensors from the exhaust you can install a bolt in their place. The EGT sensors are M12x1.25, I can't remember the O2's off the top of my head.
Most people opt for a TBE with no sensors left in the exhaust, all the plugs for this configuration are typically provided.

Smarty jr 67ME, DPF delete pipe, wire harness plug set. My thoughts were to keep this as simple and as reuseable so I could put it back to stock for the dealership upon trade-in or picky ones IF I were to ever take it to them for repairs (I do most all my own repairs). You never know what you might have to do in the future for diagnostics/trouble shooting. Every less component I have to take off is (possibly) one less I'll have to reinstall later. I was just upset that after paying 50 clams for the plug set it didn't include the plugs for the egt or o2 sensor that are left in the exhaust. That and everyone saying order from this guy his customer service is the best, and ordering from him it would only take a couple days for my parts to get to me. 5 days later the delete pipe shows up. 7 days after the order was placed the smarty shows up in what looks like a used condition, I've purchased other ones in the past so I know what they look like new. Then the smarty still had the 25ME version installed when I was told it would come with the 27ME preinstalled. I don't have a computer and wasn't going to purchase one since my Droid X does most everything I want and why pay for two internet services. I purchased the Smarty wire harness plugs and received the xrt plugs, no big deal there but still not what I ordered. I didn't even get the discount for being a cumminsforum member. Every thing was ordered from the same place on the same day.
EDIT: I forgot to add that I don't like the bolt idea since dissimilar metals corrode and exhaust is even worse. Trying to remove those after a few years would be a nightmare.
