I ran a kenne bell 2.6L, but not on a stock motor, through a 4r70 auto with 3200 stall, 373 gears. With around 15 psi, I would trap high-10s, 125-130 mph. The instant torque was insane, and at...

I agree, and this guy makes a LOT of good points.

Hope you didn't order all this stuff.

First of all, I assume you are staying with the V6. Nothing wrong with that.
If that is not the plan, then you're more on track with appropriate mods.

Eddie is right. That sensor is held on with a single bolt. Remove the bolt, pull it out.
