second guessing myself on egt location....HELP!

Hey guys,

I installed my quad pillar over the weekend and tried to find a location for my EGT probe on the drivers header which I could access. I tried on the up-pipe to the turbo but couldn't get my drill in there so only decent location was right in the middle of the drivers side header (between 2 and 3 although not sure of sequence)(had to remove air intake but easy after that).

My question is, where my probe is currently at, it will in theory only be measuring 2 of the cylinders on that side with it being in the middle of the header......will this be sufficient in giving me correct readings? I know all 4 would be ideal but that's where I'm at right now.

Thanks in advance!

The proper location is here. Drivers side manifold. Note. this image is orientated so that the front of the truck is to the far right.

I agree that it's not the most preferred spot but it's not bad. Here's where I have mine installed:

Not a damn thing wrong with the location pictured. If anything there is more meat there to tap then anywhere else on the manifold. Your good to go in that location. Which is why he pictured it on his website.
