You're thread title was a little misleading as I was thinking something totally different.

I assume you are talking about the EGT probe? Driver side exhaust manifold is most common. On my old 6.0 I tapped toward the end closest to the firewall.

There should be a plug on the side of the Trans. just above the pan. Pull that plug and install the sender in its place. I think mine had a hex head and not an allen head.

When you pull the plug on the side of the tranny make sure you have a oil drain pan because it may loose a little tranny fluid.
P.S I ordered my glowshift gauges with quad piliar last night they are suppose to be here thursday. I got EGT, Boost, Trans temp, Fuel Pressure I went ahead and popped for the 10 buck wiring kit so I do not have to buy alot of wire to hook them up.

about 260 and I used discount code BOOST12 they are aprox 290 before the discount
Link for the quad piliar you will see the base price of 199.99 but you have to choose your gauges and it changes the price.

If you get fuel pressure gauge get the 0-100 psi and the egt is 1500 rating 0-60 boost gauge you will never see anything close to 60 for boost.

This link is for the 3 piliar you might as well spend the extra 50-60 bucks to get the quad that way you have one more gauge.

I ordered mine direct from glow shift with a 60 psi boost, 2400 pyrometer, fuel gauge instead of trans gauge and it was 242.00 with fuel adapter and 3 gauge wiring kit

Smile EGT thermocouple

I have been hereing this placement thing for ages and I still don't understand the thinking. The first thing I see is only one bank is read. Next is your so close to one cyl., that one will dominate. There is no difference in accuracy differance, just a 200 degree scale difference. I have both mine. The last thought is every big truck on the road today has the thermcouple after the turbo and the manufactures say its more accurate. These are $30,000 engines that pull the mountains at over 30psi boost for a long time and need to be watched carefully. I trust CAT. when they say its best. I have never had any of my 625hp fry.
