Question EGT Probe for Banks Exhaust

What kind of probe do I need for my Banks exhaust, the standard thermocouple, or the clamp style?

Same Question Here. Where does it install? Also how do you do the Trans Temp Probes and what kind? And the Boost Pressure. Where is it taken and how?

Most boost gauges will include a T fitting, on your truck, splice the T fitting into the boost line and connect the line from the gauge to the T fitting, done. The pressure line is on the passengers side of the turbo and goes from there to the MAP sensor, it should be easy to find.

Manual or auto?

You should in my opinion tap the manifold on the drivers side of the truck for your EGT readings. You temp reading will be more accurate. I'm not sure about other manufactures, but the Autometer pyros come with a probe that will require you to use a 1/4" NPT pipe tap and a 7/16" drill bit to drill the hole, but of course double check that before you poke a hole in your manifold.



Oh and welcome to the forums guys.

Look on the drivers side of the tanny, just above the flange from the pan, you should see a wiring harness along there, right in front of the harness there you will see a plug, take the plug out, a little tranny fluid will probably come out so have a thumb handy. The tranny temp sensor will screw in there, be careful not to crank it down to tight.
