2 EGTs

coming from an inline diesel background, and understanding that the best location is pre-turbo, i'm still bewildered about EGT sensor locations on a V-8. i put it in the drivers manifold as prescribed by most, but i honestly feel the PSD's should have 2 EGT's to monitor each bank. is that overkill?

mods thus far:
1704 tuner gizmo, BHAF, 4" DP to 5" stack, FPR w.109 shim, disconnected wastegate, plethora of gauges, 10k mod w/ 20k resistor (removed after it jacked up my connector), 17*HPOP (not really), hybrid sticks (I wish), some kinda badass turbo (another lie), mega body damage (that's gospel).

i dont know for sure, but i am thinking about putting one on the passenger side too. i know there are a few that have both and i have heard the passenger side runs a little cooler. not sure how much though.

I know a guy who ran three EGT gauges, it's up to you, but I see no need to have one on each side!!

I guess it depends on the price you can get the gauges for
but I do think it may be helpful in monitoring what each side is doing.

Hey NCHornet, love your walker btw. My little girl's named Belle and I'd post pics if I knew how. Do you hunt with them?

Not to hijack your thread, but I thought about doing something similar. I bought the truck with a bung welded on the downpipe after the turbo. I know this isnt the best location for it, so I plan on doing the manifold tap method on the drivers side. I dont want to just weld up the hold on the downpipe so i thought about buying another probe, and putting it on the same current pyro gauge. Just install a switch, so I can use 1 gauge to monitor both probes. Any comments on this setup?

So you guys could just buy another prob for $50 or so, and install in both banks and just flip a switch for passenger and drivers side.

We had a discussion on here not too long ago. We can to the conclusion that it would not be needed. I somthing was wrong it would set a code for an injector, or cylender not contrubuting. Search for "egt probe location" I think that was the title.

i have an EGT gauge on my 96er. the sensor is just a few inches before the turbo. it's an auto tranny 4x4 with 4:10 rears with the EBPV unplugged. my EGT's run 600-700 degrees at 65mph.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

Have a right and left pyro, no reason to do it, there are some differances but not enough to warrant doing it.
