    Well, got dizzy looking at it with the maggie so we decided to just slide the maggie forward by a few inches. Worked like a charm and probably quicker than dremel/facia removal. Unbolt maggie, take out intake tube, unplug sensors, unplug injectors and slide forward. No need to remove coolant hoses. About an hour and a bit total.

    Is it just me or does this seem to be a bigger issue on booster V's?

    It's you.

    These are a known failure in the LS series.

    Vette guys pop them so often someone came out with a relocation kit.

    What really screws them up is cold thick oil on start up and then rev it a bit.

    POP!

    I was going to say the same thing, that it seemed to be a disproportionate number of the maggie folks. But maybe they make all the threads because it's so much harder to get to it with the blower in place.

    Re: Oil Pressure Sensor Sender Failure

    So just the sensor sender going is a common problem? I got in mine today after driving it 15 minutes prior and it said oil pressure 0 stop engine. I bugged out. Pulled the filler neck out of the valve cover and didnt see any oil flow and thought the worst towed it home. There is deff a strange tick coming from the engine now so Im not 100% on it being the sensor but well see.

    If you had no oil pressure it would be more then a "strange tic".

    It would sound like a bucket of bolts having a death rattle.

    Re: Oil Pressure Sensor Sender Failure

    I did it today! I was tired to have the Oil Pressure reading out of wack and have the "Service Engine Soon" popin up on the NAV.
    Got a BWD (Made in Mexico) oil pressure sender for $69 at Partsouce. Brass fitting and seems and feel better quality than the OEM I pulled out. I also bought the socket for $11. In Ontario Canada, we need to add another $10.40 or 13% (Harmonized Sales Tax) or HST. I have a few other names for this one. Yes, I did remove the windshield washer motor trim. Took me around 15 minutes. All looks good now!
    Thanks for this thread! It made me come to conclusion and fix it myself.
    Cheers
