Default do I need the egt sensor in the up pipe?

I'm going to make my own up pipe and was wondering about the EGT sensor. Some up pipes come with the sensor hole and others don't. So I'm assuming that if a pipe doesn't come with the bung for the sensor then its not nessesary. I can tap a hole for the egt but have heard that the sensors are known for breaking and destroying turbos. Your input would be appreciated.

No, you don't need it if you're not running the stock up pipe. Jump the 2 sides of the harness with a 2.2k 1/2W resistor so you don't get a CEL.
