Programmer and Gauge conflict

I have a Edge Programmer and i would like to install an auxillary EGT gauge.

Can i connect the gauge to the same probe as the programmer?

I am not sure if i will get inaccurate readings if i do it this way!?

Or do i have to use a separate probe independent of the programmer?

If i have to use an independent probe, Where would the best location for this second probe be for the gauge?

Anybody have a set-up like this that can tell me?

Thanks

Why would you want this? In the case you aiming for a dual pyro setup put the other pyro on the passenger side manifold to get the other banks readings or you could do it in the down pipe and get a pre turbo and post turbo reading.

I am wanting this because the Programmer has a small screen and is difficult for me to see what the EGT #'s are, Especially at night!
I need glasses to read, Not to drive, So i figured to just install a analog gauge that i can actually see where the needle is pointing on the scale.
I can see the needle climb!

The Programmer probe is installed according to instructions on the driver side after last X port.

If connecting the gauge and Programmer to the same probe is not a good idea, I was going to install it on the opposite side of the engine same place as driver side after last X port.

How much difference in reading could it be?

Would installing a second probe inline right after the first probe be a good idea?

I am also installing a Boost gauge as well.


Thanks for your reply!

If sight is your problem you want to keep both probes preturbo. I would simply place the other probe on the passenger side exhaust manifold

Sight is problem, That's what i figured, a second probe on pass side.

So i guess one probe can not be used for the programmer and gauge together?

Is it necessary to have pre + post gauges? Pre is more important correct?

Pre is more important. It will tell you what the temp is coming out of the motor headed to the turbo. The turbo will likely melt before anything else.
