That ebp tube wonít last if it isnít supported on the sensor end. Put the sensor back on the correct end with the bracket and resend the tube so it can reach the factory location. Or make a small bracket to extend the reach.

If/when it breaks Iíll do something about it. The tube is already bent like crazy and bending it back will weaken it. Iíd rather make a new tube.

Also, whatís to prevent me from putting the sensor straight onto the pipe? Does it need the tube to cool it or get a proper reading?

Itíll break. Youíd have to extend the harness and the sensor probably wouldnít handle the direct heat.

When it does Iíll bend up a new tube, I think Iíll snap this one bending the joints again.
