EGT gauge

Needing to intall my egt gauge and wondering about the best placement, i dont really want to take the manifold of so what would be a safe egt range if i install it after the turbo?

you dont have to take the manifold off. just find a location that you can drill and tap. try to get it as close to the head as possible

I've been told it can be off as much as 500 degrees

Don't be nervous about drilling the manifold. It took me like 2-3 mos. before I worked up the nerve to drill and tap the gauge myself. It turned out to be a piece of cake.

its easy i did it my self. you can tap it on your driver side manifold without taking it off. from under the truck, drill the hole in the manifold streight up so that way all the shavings will fall down. then when your done get a small magnet and stick it up there to get any shavings that might be in there

its not that bad to do just a little time consuming but definatley use a magnet after your done drilling and tapping. its way more effective then vacuming it out
