Best place for EGT sensor

Looking for advice on where to place a EGT sensor on by 97 powerstroke. I know when I installed on the 6.0 drilled the manifold on the drivers side and it worked great.

Thanks Scott

I just put mine in the up-pipe that runs from the manifold up to the turbo. That was easier to get at. It's about an inch from the manifold.
