Where Should I Install My EGT Probe?

Just like the title says, where should I install the EGT Probe? Where can I get an accurate reading, so I won't do any harm when towing? Thanks

In the manifold, use a drill and make sure you have plenty of grease on it to capture the pieces of metal.

if you haphazardly drill a hole for and run NPT tap and screw it up your probe will fall in to the manifold

Driver side manifold is the easiest and best place to put it. May however put it post turbo but that wont tell you whats going into it so you wont know if your exhaust is to hot and cook the turbo.

Drivers side exhaust manifold right in the bend where it's about to connect to the up-pipe. I believe the bend is about an inch or 2 from the up-pipe connection.

What? No... in the exhaust manifold in the bend. You also have to make sure that the probe isn't touching the other side when you put it in the hole and tighten it down. When you push the probe in the hole, push it through until it touches the other side (you'll feel it touch) and then put it out just a bit so the probe is about in the center of the exhaust flow.
