egt probe location

I'm planning an EGT gauge install and I'm wondering where the best place is to mount the probe.
Before turbo? After turbo? Approximate locations if before or after the turbo...as close as possible to the turbo if it's before? 3" away after? (just examples of what the info i'm looking for)

What have you all found to be the most accurate location?

I'll probably be doing a muff delete or Walker BTM. I'm planning to bring it to a properly tooled custom exhaust shop and, while it's there, I may have him weld on the EGT probe mount and just plug it for now.

thanks!!

Drivers side manifold at the curve before the up pipe. Never Ever mount a probe post turbo.

just like Dave said, you want it pre turbo for the most accurate readings, people say you can put it in the downpipe and just add 300* or whatever, not true. I have two pyros, one in the drivers side manifold and one in the dp, Ive seen up to 500* differences on pre/post turbo pyros.

Passenger side also works well, above the starter from the bottom. I put mine in the pass side, so when I add water/methanol, the kit probe can use the driver's manifold.

Out of curiousity, WHY THE HELL DOES BANKS PUT THEIR PROBE POST-TURBO???
