egt install

when you guys installed your egt probe when you were drilling and tapping what did you do to keep shavings from getting into your system. i was just wondering cause its gonna be a pain to take the up pipe off. any other ways to do it

you can coat your drill tip with greas so that it picks up the shavings and people also turn on the truck so that as soon as you go through it spits it out ..... other than that no real way to do it better unless you decide to take out the whole manifold

I did both, to an extent with the grease atleast. I used lots of WD-40. Just cept washing it.


Was really easy to do. And i was totally done in about 30 minutes.

Dont use grease it can get stuck up in there with the shavings in it just drill it out tap it and either take a magnet into the hole or a shop vac most shavings will just fall out because of the way the drillbit works anyway

I have noticed everyone has there only little tips, and ideas on this. They all pretty much work the same. To me I think placement of the probe is a little more important then drilling and tapping the hole for it.

Most say the driverside exhaust manifold because it is easy to get to. That is where I recommend you put it as well.

I put my pyro in the top of the driverside exhaust manifold. I drilled down. I used grease to prevent shavings getting into the exhaust. Then I used a shop vac. Then I finished up my install and started the truck up and I have yet to have any problems from my install of the pyro.

Anything that does fall UP... Into the manifold will blow right thru the turbo with no issues... Your turbo is not some fragile piece of glass... it spins at 40,000rpm's and see's temps in excess of 1200 on a daily basis..

I used a magnet, and it seemed to work well. I wasn't too worried about anything left in there. I agree with csi, the turbo is pretty tough, and whatever was left was pushed quickly before the turbo started spinning too fast

I agree with CSI.... i did mine ,and hte drill bit is made to let hte chips fall down the fluits DO NOT use greese on it ... the chips fall down because of gravity,(wear glases), Dont worry about ne thing getting in2 the turbo,, think of it you are drilling in2 the exhaust side this is hot 2 say hte least its on X it side not the intake it wount getinto the engine it leaves the truck..If you are realy concerned after drilling and tapping magnitize a allen set, put it in hte hole nad see if ne thing sticks 2 it... good luck Bill Its a easy job if you have everything together
