trans cooler and gauge install

looking into putting a trans cooler on my truck just want to get some opinions on what is the best one to get ive herd of some people using the 6.0 coolers and ive herd of some people using the v10 coolers is there any good aftermarket ones just want some input also getting ready to install my pyro gauge i know i want it pre turbo but just wondering where is the best place reading through different posts ive read that the easiest place in the pass side manifold..but u would only be monitoring half i would think the best place would be in the y pipe before the turbo is it possible to do this with out removing the turbo ive herd if u grease the bit that it should keep the shavings out but i really dont want to screw up my turbo please give thoughts

I use a true cool cooler on mine, also have the egt probe in the passenger manifold and if you really wanted to monitor everything you could put a probe in every cylinder like the Navy does on it's big engine's, but seriously your just looking at a overall condition for your egt's and if every cylinder is contributing as it should where you pick to monitor it shouldn't be a big factor. Unlike the big engines these are a lot easier to tell when it's not running right. Yes use grease to hold the shavings when drilling and tapping plus I also use a shop vac in the hole before installing the probe just as a little extra insurance.

Always done my probe installs on the drivers side manifold. More room to get a drill in there.
Drill/tap with the truck running. Exhaust back pressure will blow the shavings out of the hole. No need to grease/vacuum with this method.
