Question EGT without probe?

Hey everybody! I just got my powercroak last friday but have been snooping around here for a few days researching what i want to do after the warranty runs out. I bought a 2006 lariat CC SB 101000 miles from a guy that just had the EGR stuff fixed, new injectors, gaskets, fuel pump, water pump in Dec. at the local Ford stealership. The parts are warrantied through Dec. I think so I don't want to touch ANYTHING till the warranties are up. Anyway, I thought I saw a thread about a display I think from Edge that would read all the temps and stuff from the OBDII port versus tapping the pipe. I've looked up and down and can't find where I saw that. Maybe I was dreaming or something

Does anybody know what I'm talking about or maybe another product that does the same thing?

Even with a Edge I am almost positive you still need to install a Pyrometer Probe....don't buy an Edge module just because u don't wanna drill and tap...that's the easy part!....leave motor running and grease up ur drill bit after got the hole done tap it and ur done!

True. I can't do Exhaust or anything till Dec. so might as well save up and do it right the first time. Hope this truck will make it till then!

the 6.4 can be monitors through the OBD II port. That is probably what you seen. The 6.0 definitely needs a EGT probe.

How so?? I've always heard this is the best method. I'm pretty sure it's what the shop did when they installed mine.

And what is ur way?..drill a hole and leave shavings in ur manifold?..now that's a problem. By greasing up the bit the shaving stick to it and any that don't are blown onto the ground while motor is running...safest reliable way. If u don't have a Pyro guage in ur diesel ur asking for trouble..but I'm still interesed to hear why installing a pyro is asking for problems.

I dunno about you guys,but I used one of those magnetic tools with an articulating head after I was done drilling and taping the hole. Made a few rounds inside the manifold until it came out clean. Will be doing that again when it warms up again and I put another pyro on the right side of the turbo also.
