egt probe

i want to install an egt probe but my manifold bolts don't look like they will come out. just wondering if some of u have put in the down pipe after the turbo. and what your results where.

You can drill and tap the manifold while its bolted to the block. Otherwise if you use the dp your temps will be inacurate by a couple few hundred degrees!

You will have a several hundred degree difference. You can do that and make a guesstamite for temp...but I'd put it pre-turbo, you wanna know what the temps are heading TO the turbo, not away.

EDIT: Sean, we are typing at the same time again!!

They make temp probes that go on the outside of the exhaust for aircraft, my friend has them on his helicopter. Has anyone tried them on their truck?

You can, but its not necessary. A drill bit is fluted so shavings are pushed out of the hole your drilling and gravity will do the rest, so no worries I haven't heard about the avaition temp probe

what we did when i worked for the performance shop was to drill it because the bit would pull the shavings out and then quick start up the truck to blow any excess out of the hole then it was easy from there

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned
