Mounting location for an EGT probe???

Well Merry Christmas to me my insight came in today! I also got the optional EGT probe but im not sure on where to mount it I have a turbo back exhaust and it looks like there is a port after the turbo is that a good spot or is it even an option? Thanks for the help and Merry Christmas to you and your family!!!!

Not a 7/16's bit and not a 1/4-20 tap....Copied from the directions...Start with a small pilot hole and work your way up to a size "R" drill bit (0.339") increasing 1 drill bit size at a time. Using a 1/8" NPT tap, tap the hole.

7/16 ( 3/8 also) is bigger than .339. Do not drill too big for the tap or you may be screwed, and not in a good way.
Make sure it is a NPT tap as directed.

^^^What he said^^^

For the tap... I used a 9mm/12 pt socket, the tap will fit in it perfectly. I used 4-5 rounds of electrical tape to hold the tap in place and took my time. Also used a vacuum with the small 'crevice' attchment to clean up after I drilled and after I tapped.

Pretty easy job
