Hey fellas. I am needing a little help. I just ordered a pyro gauge and a boost gauge and I am not a 100% sure on the best place to put the probe for the pyro gauge. Just looking for a little insight, it would appreciated.

Before the turbo is the best choice. Drivers side exhaust manifold on the downturn. I will see if I can find a pic for you

hello, When I bought my truck, it already had a Banks Pyro and Boost Gauge installed on the pillar post. My question is, the Pyro Thermocouple is installed in the downpipe. How does this affect the readings I am getting? Are they somewhat accurate? Thanks
