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.
