I got that same code on mine back at 61K miles. They had to do some extra diagnosis. They ended up replacing #3 and no further issues. I am not 100% sure about what the additional tests are, but I know they are required to see which sensor is bad.

Most likely only one of the sensors are bad. That being said, if they are the same P/N, and this being a common issue, you'd think they would both eventually fail on every car, but seems like it's only one of them most usually.

EGT 2 went out for me yesterday. Read about 80F and not 300F like it should.

Which is odd. It gave me P2080, which if for EGT 1. But EGT 2 was the one causing trouble. Something's not right with how the codes are lit.

I ended up just leaving it and disabling the codes it throws... Will probably keep it that way unless it effects the engine badly...

Mine was replaced under emissions warranty. Not sure why it was for me and not for some people.
