Pyro Probe Location?

I installed the Pyro Gauge and my Boost Gauge tonight, the boost is working well, but I have yet to install the actual Pyro Probe. Where is the best place to mount this. It does not appear that it is possible to mount it in the exhaust manifold as the prob is about 3" long and the manifold is only 2.5" or so.... I was thinking in the exhaust downpipe right after the turbo??

Drill and tap the drivers manifold at the back right where is starts to bend. It will fit there and give you the most accurate reading. Is your probe the type that threads into the manifold or has a clamp that holds it on?

Is the probe adjustable through the fitting that goes into the manifold?

I don't think so but I will have to look tomorrow at the shop. I know there is a nut that threads in the the manifold and then the probe screws onto that nut I believe. I bought it used off a guy that had it on his Excursion with a 7.3

You should be able to thread the one piece into the manifold and the slide the probr where you want it (needs to be as close to center of the inside of manifold as possible) then take the nut and tighten it down to hold the probe in place. It might be a little different than that but you should be able to adjust it somehow.

They fit into the manifold fine. Got mine right there and didn't have a problem with it hitting the other side

the probes use an NPT (normal pipe thread)

pipe threads are angled 60 degrees and tapered. The taper will prevent the probe from entering too far. There probably wont be an adjustment on the depth of your probe, but you shouldnt need it.
