I'd have to say, just like the PSD, it'd be the cyl#1 port on your exhaust manifold for the most accurate reading. Remove the exhaust manifold(may be a PITA), drill the hole & then tap with 1/4"npt & you've got a place to screw in your thermocoupler.

To tell you the truth, I'm not exactly sure. The way I did it on my PSD was just getting under the truck & removing the manifold. Not sure if it's as easy for an IDI.
