installing glowshift 3n1 gauge on 97 250

i got this glow shift 3n1 gauge, and my questions are concerning the egt and the trany temp sensors. i have a 97 250.

for the egt do i install the sensor before or after the turbo?
for the trany sensor it says to install it in the temp monitoring port, not quite sure where that is. so any help or tips would be appriciated. thanks guys.

Pre turbo is the better option for the EGT gauge. The transmission port should be on the left side just above the pan. It will most likely just have a plug in it.

when you drill the hole for the egt guage you will need a drill bit and a tap bit so you will drill the hole then tap/ thread the hole, the probe should come with some kind of paperwork that will tell you what the drill and tap sizes are that you need

Sounds about right depending on outside temps and the like. Mine cruises at about 650ish at 55 and 300-350 at idle in gear. No offense intended, but the glowshifts aren't known for their accuracy (It's better than nothing though), so I'd say it's working right, not to mention each truck is a bit different.

Snuck this one in on me while I was typing. I've never seen an automatic in gear idle at those temps. Only time mine is that low is at startup or in park/neutral or single digit temps. I did notice he was in Ohio. Not that it really matters, but but to the OP, is yours a stick or auto?
