gauge locations?

Just bought a 4 gauge pillar with boost, egt, eot, and fuel pressure. Where do I tap in for all of these? What should my readings be? My truck is an e99 f250 sd. Thanks

EOT I am not sure of. EGT should be the back of the drivers side exhaust manifold, and fuel pressure should be at one the ports on the back of the fuel bowl. Since you have an e99 and don't have an AIH, you will have to drill and tap your intake spider after the intercooler, or you can tee it into the MAP sensor line.

is there even enough room to drill the hole for the egt probe?

Eta: Looked it up it appears you drill from under the truck?

If you look to the left of the oil filter you"ll find the spot, it's a 7/16'' socket you will need to remove the plug .The plug thread size is 1/8''NPT, hope this helps.

Will oil come out of here when I pull the plug? I'm doing an oil change in a couple weeks so I can do it then if that's the case

No you might just get a drip or two, just remember to use some thread or thread sealant on you sender.

There is barely enough room to drill, but it can be done.

Can't you get oil pressure readings from that plug as well? Or is that from someplace else?

Yeah, that's what I'm saying the plug on the filter housing is the best place to get your EOT .
