Driver's side manifold where it turns up to the up-pipe. It's easy to access with the drill and the tap. I even drilled a pilot hole first and still took less than 5 minutes to drill, tap and install the thermocouple. Just make sure you drill the right size hole and be carefull with the tap.

The 08 comes equipped with an egr thermocouple so ther must be a factory hole. If you wish to add a second egr gauge then you will need to drill one
