    Forget the EGR cleaning on the V6. It's way too complicated and if your car's not giving your problems I'd just leave it.
    Boost sesnor is at the back bank in the inlet manifold. It's the little black box thingie with HITACHI BOOST written on it. Take it out and spray it with brake cleaner.

    You have to move a box like thing with vacuum pipes above the boost sensor. It's on the right side, about 6-7 inches from the turbo.
    I personally woulnd't bother with it. Is your car giving you problems?

    There is/was a pic on here with its location, Remove the top cover, its in the corner near the turbo under some pipes/cables.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
