where to install thermocoupler/pyrometer sensor

I have the Banks 6 Gun.
I have not installed the thermocoupler yet.
Is it really necessary? What do I gain by having it? I only do routine day-to-day driving with some towing.
Instructions recommend installing in exhaust manifold.
I have a plug in the exhaust pipe immediately behind the turbo.
Is there a problem installing the pyometer sensor there (should would be much easier)?
Thanks

I don't know much about banks but I put my recon monitor in yesterday and i put it in the drivers side manifold at the back by the bend it is really easy to get at just go under the truck and look up above the front drive shaft there is lots of room for a drill to fit no problem

If you put it in after the turbo you need to keep in mind the temps will read a couple hundred degrees lower than what they are in the manifold. In the drivers side exhaust manifold is probably a better choice. Stick a shop-vac up to the hole after you've drilled and tapped it so the metal shaving don't go through your turbo.
