EGT probe placement

I installed my MBRP 4" exhaust and Edge Evo system today. What a difference !

I need to install my EGT tomrrow. I have the cable in the engine bay and all.

I was trying to figure out where to mount it, I have been advised to be pre-turbo.

I saw some posts with a couple pics and all, but I can't figure which side is being used. Is it accessable easily enough?

Thanks in advance all,
Mike

Yup, get under it, look up at the engine, and find the exhaust manifold on the drivers side.

Take your time, start w/ the smallest bit, and work your way up one at a time to keep the shavings small. Dont forget to vaccume the shavings out when you are done. (DOn't use grease on the bit)

Thanks all !

Crawled back underneath this morning and the pictures looked familiar this time. I went three steps with drill bits, tapped it out and installed the sensor.

I did go at a slow speed so almost all shaving fell straight down while drilling. I used a shop vac to remove and that may have got into the manifold. It could not have been much if anything at all. I kept the vac up there while taping also.

Started her up, changed the lower center gauge on the CTS to EGT and poof, I have exhaust temp info now. Pretty nice if you ask me.


I will say this, since putting on the 4" MBRP system and the Evolution CTS. This truck made a night and day difference in performance.

I am awaiting the AFE stage II CAI system next. They were on back order at PDP, as they were on sale and they had the 10% additional off. The should be in next week. Gonna take the boat out for a drive to top off the fuel and see how well it does behind the Ex.

you running the stock air box?...dont be tromping on it too much, ive seen those buggers lift due to added boost and suck dirt in..

a 6637 and a piece of stainless 4" pipe will fix your intake problems pretty easily..

It is funny you ask about the stock air box...

I was looking it over last night and realized the it pulls air in from in front of the engine compartment. I was thinking that it may have been some sort of aftermarket system. But Ebay pictures showed several trucks with the same setup, so it must be stock.

I guess I remove the battery and the housing that it sits in when I replace it, huh?

I am not sure what you are referring to 6637 and stainless 4" pipe. Is there a tech proceedure on this modification? I will take a peek to look for it.

i made this for everyone..

Intakes...who and what!.. ( Write up )

the 6637 is almost the same as the tymar jsut very cost efficient and way better engine filtration... same filter just no CAI tube, you just unbolt the facory tube off the air box insert a 4" stainless pipe about 4" long and bolt the filter to the other end..drop it in your stock air box location and done!

I know it is cheaper, but if I am able to get the AFE Stage II system that usually sells over $400 for $320 shipped, would it benefit me much over the 6637 for my system?

The write up showed 15HP and 32 torque gain with this, but I don't recall seeing any other values for other systems.


Thanks a bunch for the information !


Mike

The 6637 filter is a much better filter than the k&n style filters.
