Broken Temp sending unit in intake

I was changing the temp sending unit ...and as I was putting the new one in... it snapped. I guess I tighten it a little too tight.

Any ideas how to get it out?

Um... drill out the center, then use an extractor?

an extractor wouldnt work on mine b/c the sender is brass. it depends on the level of corrosion. worse case, use a small blade screwdriver to make a notch in the side, then, shove a bigger screwdriver in to spin it out. mine was so corroded i ended up just retapping it.
