can i use this egt probe?

i stumbled across an egt monitor here at my house earlier and im thinking about putting it on my truck since i dont have guages and i would like to be able to monitor at least my egts
the problem with all this is that they are clamp on probes and the manifolds arent round (or are they i havent looked yet lol) will the clamp hold it tight? or do i just have to go with out guages like i have been?

Here are a few pics. The one with the long lead, yellow two-prong connector, and clamp on end it one that I need (and I think you have), while the other one with the weatherpack terminal and shorter lead is probably the one you need. You drill a small hole and thread in the insert. It is NPT (I think) so it is slightly tapered and tightens in nicely. The weatherpack one is usually about $70-$150 depending on where you look. I will trade you straight across for the clamp on if it is like the one pictured.

By the way, that Stang is sick looking!

I do not but Omega has just about everything for adapting these, plus a million different types of thermocouples. check out omega.com and I will see if they have an adapter or a way to change the end.
