Question EBPV gut, and turbo pedestal upgrade. EGT question. with pics

I'm gutting my EBPV and replacing my pedestal with a non ebpv model.

While gutting the ebpv I was thinking, would it be a good location for an egt sending unit?

I've never installed an egt sensor, so I don't know how large they are, or what the recommended location is. I think I've heard of the DP being a good spot for one. But since I have a hole to fill in the EBPV, could I stick a sending unit in there?

Or is this location not going to provide an accurate reading?

Go for it! I think it would be a good place. You just have to realize that your EGT's can get as high when your sensor is post turbo.

Just plug the housing and put the egt in the manifold. That will give you the "real" temp.

+1 for the exhaust manifold! Why swap pedistols when you can remove the enternals and plug the hole?

ok, so then the egt is generally stuck in the manifold?

I guess it doesn't matter which side?

If I stuck it post Turbo, my temps would be potential cooler, than the actual manifold? Would it be as much as 100 degree difference? or are we talking more like 10 - 20 degrees?


And if your sticking the sensor in the manifold, I wonder is there a dual temp sensor that could average the 2 sides, or am I getting to anal with details?

I'm swapping pedestals to get rid of the ebpv actuator. I don't really want to grind it off and have it welded up. Buying one from Beans is simpler for me.

well, I cant bring up the video. On the back of the acuator houseing, remove the snap ring and plate...remove the acuator and rod...tap the acuator rod hole for a bolt...I but a nut and washer on the bolt just in case it wanted to back out...reinstall plate and snap ring.
