EGT PROBE

Ok. I am wanting to know where you all mounted your egt probe?

I know in the manifold is the best, but I know many of people who did behind the turbo? I wanna hear your guys opinion on whats better...

Thanks,

you would drill a 7/16" hole with a 15/32" drill bit you cant drill the hole the same size as what your tap is. becasue the tap wont have anything to grab on.
