The best place is your exhaust manifold. Use the drivers side as its less of a run for the wires.

I agree exhaust manifold is the only way to go. Temps differ vastly if you put it anywhere else...

And the exhaust manifold is very easy to drill/tap. MUCH easier than plate steel. It won't take you more than 10 minutes.

use a vacuum/shop vac next to the whole while you are drilling. Then put some wheel bearing grease on the tap to hold on to the shavings. Don't want cast iron shavings getting back into the cylinders some how. Not likely, but better to be safe....
