EGT Probe clamp vs threaded install

I wondering if the clamp installation of a probe is as good as the tapped one. I'd like to do the tapped one but I'm a little sketchy about tapping things, especially when I only have one chance.

This is what I'm talking about in case anyone doesn't know.

Tapping is easy! But if you went with the clamp style that works also.

That picture on the link shows the install well after the turbo in the down pipe. I would think you would want it before the turbo for a more accurate reading.

there are separate reasons for doing it preturbo as opposed to post turbo. but for sake of monitoring egt's for engine damage reasons, you want it preturbo !! and this is better with a tapped setup.

the clamp setup is good for post turbo readings, which are mainly for monitoring egt's for sake of idle down time before shutting off.

Actully your right with that pic, but you can use the uppipe instead of the dp.

My post wasn't directed at you guys pointing out that you guys were wrong because your not I was just adding my two cents that you can also clamp it to the uppipe

I haven't yet. I have done mine and my dad's 06. Plenty of space as your drilling into the back of the manifold where it turns to go to the uppipe
