Egt probe placement?

Where is the easiest place to put the probe? I know it needs to go before the turbo but could I drill and tap an exhaust manifold or is that too close the the head and read too much heat? Just trying to do this the easy way as it looks like I will have to remove the up pipes to get it right before the turbo.

On my '01, they drilled/tapped the driver's side manifold toward the back just before it hits the up-pipe. IIRC, there is a flat spot on the manifold there. Not sure on the OBS manifolds - Should be similar.

you dont even have to move anything to place it, i did mine in the drive way with a cordless drill, do it in the drivers side manifold just before the up pipe, very easy stuff, good luck

btw its literally above the frame rail, you can fit just about any drill in there to fit it

I have a Banks exhaust kit on my truck and it has a bung already in place on the down pipe don't believe it shows the correct temp believe it may show cooler temp.

You're correct. I've heard of people taking pre and post turbo readings and getting up to a 600*F delta.
