EGT probe

I plan on purchasing an Edge Insight in the future but I will be installing my new exhaust shortly. Does the Insight have a probe that needs to be attached to the exhaust and would this be easier to do while installing the new exhaust? Is the probe something I can order separately, install and hook up to the Insight later?

Probe is a seperate purchase from the Insight and can be installed at any time. Best place to mount it is on the driver's side pipe at or close to the 90. So doing it when you replace the rest of your exhaust really wont affect anything.

For some reason I thought the probe went on the down pipe of the exhaust after the turbo. Is this incorrect?

Not correct, if you put the probe post turbo, the temps won't be as accurate and may be off by as much as 400*.

The most accurate place is pre-turbo as already mentioned.

This is a must if you pull heavy even if you do not, need for cool down 350*-360* before you turn the key off.

After drilling it out i used a magnet with a paper clip with a L shape on the end clip taped to the magnet run in the hole to remove any steel then tap the hole going only half way with the tap so you do not over size the hole, do not use grease. (the steel is soft so be carefull) Take is slow.
