What is the best place for my EGT Probe?

Just did coolant filtration system, 5 inch exhaust no muffler, and EGR Delete. Now we are going to install the EGT Probe and want to know the best play to put it?

Hope someone can answer with some good detail.

Best place is driver side manifold right at the bend. Use grease on the drillbit.

They say don't use grease, some do, some say motor running.
I did it motor off, no grease, worked golden. As long as you drill straight vertical, then it'll all fall down whereas if you drill diagonally, some of the shavings may not come out.

You use grease to help collect the bits of metal that go up in the manifold so it doesnt go into the turbo. You never want that kind of stuff going in your turbo no matter if someone hasnt had issues with it or not. If a pice.gets wegged in between one of the blades and the housing there goes your turbo. Who is this "they" that say not to....lmao

The location on the driver side is convenient in terms of probe wire length to the gauge and to avoid other places a conduit might rub or catch or melt..I think the passenger side is probably hotter due to a restriction in the passenger side up pipe at the EGR cooler port (but the magnitude couldn't really be that high a difference). The fact that so many have used this site (driver side exhaust manifold) makes comparison among the community consistent and provides a frame of reference to relate during many driving conditions. Another spot used frequently is the post turbo down pipe. Some even put a thermocouple in both locatoins.

I took my exhaust manifold OFF to install the pyrometer adapter.

Taking it off is the best way to do it but not the easiest or fastest. The driver side is hotter though. I have one in both and my driver side is always hotter.

Definitely not fast but easy is sort of subjective. There are just a few bolts but I will acknowledge that several are DIFFICULT. How much hotter is the driver side?
