I bought it with it in the down pipe, I read that it was a good spot so I left it! I do plan on ordering a new 4" system so I can move it then, where should it be?
Never mind, mine is on the left side, the up pipe.

Exhaust manifold. I am more concerned with the temps going in than coming out.

Well, what really matters is where it SHOULD it be to allow you to protect your
engine...

Hint: Down pipe is NOT the answer

Manifold for more accurate temp readings... putting it in the down pipe is like going to the eye doctor, and asking for glasses that are almost good enough for you to read clearly, but not what you really need...

In the manifold. As stated above, you want to monitor the temps going in the turbo, not coming out.

I wasn't thinking, mine is on the left.. The up-pipe, I need to change my vote ha. It's in the lower part of the up pipe, should it be moved up to the manifold?
