The only question I have here is, do you need to remove the heat shield off the back of the engine to get this done from the top?

I have the new IPC, the original was changed under warranty and so was the harness.
That was 100,000 miles ago I I am having issues now.

As an after thought, does the EBS use the same size thread and fitting as the IPC? Why couldn't someone use an AN to flare fitting and a length of steel tube to a flare and fitting and bracket like the EBS and move the little bugger to a locaton with the connector pointing forward just behind the FICM There is plenty of wire harness and no more fighting behind the turbo. Just a thought, and I will not even demand copy writes to it. The IPC only needs to read pressure and a short length of tube will not change responce time all that much.

Ok here we go, Went to Sears this morning and got a brand new 12 point 1 1/16 socket, Spent untold amount of time with the sawzall cutting it down.

Started on the truck removing everything ( getting good at that part done it 3 or 4 times now) Air filter, amd intake parts and the two small hoses to the coolant tank. I have large rubber caps I put on the barbs for those hoses so no need draining coolant, I can unbolt the coolant tank and just roll it forward and down. Took out the FICM and the rear stud on the manifold. With all that out I unplugged the IPR and the reached back there and unplugged the IPC. After roughly 100,000 miles on it the connector was again full of oil.

With the ne cut down socket,a universal, and all the 1/2 inch drive extentions I had, I got the IPC loose then unscrewed it by hand. Putting the new one in was a bit of a trick. I used a chunk of 1/2 inch garden hose and a short chunk of aluminum tubing I had. I put the hose on the end of the tubing and the new IPC in the end of the hose. Standing on a small step ladder beside the driver's side fender I was able to hold a flashlight and reach in and start the treads by turning the tubing.

Then it was back to the socket and everything together in the reverse of how it came appart. I would say it too longer to cut the socket and get everything ready then it did with the acual change. Thanks Guys for the great posting.
