Why are you welding a bung in? You drill, tap, and they screw directly into the exhaust manifold.

Drill and Tap the Manifold....The Pre and Post Turbo Wars were over a LONG time ago LOL

Pre-Turbo should allways be done

You can count on over a 300*+ Difference in Pre and Post Turbo Temps...plus the temp before the turbo is more accurate and fluctuates faster to let you know to back off the Fuel

Do a search on EGT probe or pyrometer; there was a thread on here a while back showing an installed picture.
