Or you can drill and tap it yourself, install it in the map line, or weld in a bung in one of the I/C tubes.

Just use a T and put it in the mapline, easiest and done in 5 min. As for the EGT probe you want it in the exhaust manifold, drivers side, about 1 1/2 from the union to the up pipe. Crawl under the front of the engine and you will be staring at it.
