Cool

I'm debating the same
Put it in the drivers side manifold = you only get temps from one rail
CON= if an injector sticks open on the passenger side you won't
even know it till it's to late.
Put it after turbo you get true reading from both rails

Put it before turbo you get true reading from both rails.

Not sure what I'll do just wait till the weather gets better and look over all areas well.
Probably before turbo and after both rails or just make it simple after turbo
top of downpipe and drive it stock to get true temp reading towing and normal driving temps.
Then go from there with a programer and a watch it close.

after the turbo is a BIG no-no.... not accurate reading... haveing it in one side will be jsut fine. if you are worried about not knowing when an injector is out.... belive me you know when one is out. you could put it in the collector before the turbo but that requires removing the collector (removeing turbo and uppipes, NOT FUN). plus you want the gauges as close to the last cyls... #7 on pass side, #8 on drivers side to get the most accurate reading on what cyl temps are

Yes definitely go in the manifold before the up pipe. You want to know your egt before it goes through your turbo so you don't damage the turbo.
