Pyrometer Probe

I am working on a 2000 F350. I purchased an A-pillar gauge pod with gauges and all wires and sensors. The pyrometer has the style probe that is held in place with a hose clamp. I have read several different opinions on where to place the probe. Some say before the turbo and some say after the turbo is ok. I have always been under the impression that it should be placed before the turbo. The probe I have has a clamp that will only work with stock exhaust and mine has 4" turbo back.

I am wondering where people have mounted the probe on there trucks. I could use it on the 4" exhaust and just use another hose clamp connected to the exsisting one, since the one on there won't come off. The clamp will fit on the up pipes or possibly merge for both pipes at the turbo. Before I go drilling permanent holes in the merge or up pipes (pipes from the manifolds, not sure if thats correct name) I would like to find out what my options are. I am trying not to purchase a new probe but if need be I will.

Thanks for any input.
Chris

That style is only used post turbo, in the down pipe.
The temp reading in the down pipes can be up to 600*F lower than manifold temp.

There's many threads on this. Put it in the driver side manifold.

Wow thanks for the quick response. Great picture and link with pics. I think I'll definitely get a new probe to put in the manifold. Is there a particular brand that's works best without breaking my wallet. I have an Autometer Phantom gauge. Don't know if that matters or not. Thanks

Idk what all you could use. I bought used gauges and got a clamp style with em also. They are Autometer as well. I just bought another Autometer probe so that way I knew it was gonna work.
