    This happened to me last year. It just shook itself loose over time. Since I had a constant CEL indicating the EGT probe was bad anyway I simply replaced it with a bolt coated in copper gasket maker. Not sure if the gasket sealer made any difference but I checked it the other day when I installed new plugs and it hasn't moved.

    As for the EGT probe I tossed it and plugged a resistor from Radio Shack into the wiring harness. Here's the tutorial

    High temp Loctite or else just get a catless U/P and scrap the EGT gauge

    I don't think anything would happen to your engine but you'd have a big hole pre-turbo so you'd lose a lot of boost. But best bet is to put it back or plug the hole ASAP.

    I used regular locktite and a lock washer and haven't had any problems.
