Pyro sensor

Haven't been on here long and already addicted. Decided since I already had gauges I'd order an exhaust. Problem is the pyro sensor is mounted in the downpipe and just wondered where I should relocate it to. Heard this wasn't the ideal location anyway.

I did alot of reading about this and hands down the driverside exaust manifold is the best place. Easy job only took me about 10 minutes start to finish.

Mine has an oxygen sensor type bung welded in downpipe now. Is that how it needs to be mounted in the manifold? Drill it out and weld it in?

Depends. Some come with a bung to weld in. My ISSPRO came with a Tap so I just drilled and tapped and it worked fine

Mine too. just drill and tap. That pot metal is somewhat soft making it easy.
Lay under ur truck, driverside and look up at your oil filter. Toward the front of your truck from the oil filter you will see the bottom of the manifold. I drilled and tapped mine in the bottom back bend of the manifold. I guess I should have asked what year truck you had...mine is a 03 with 7.3.
