"2" Much EGT: Thermocouplers

Well, I've gotten a big portion of my Big Hoss bundle from Banks & now I'm just waiting for a small parts kit from them. Now, it turns out that the Six Gun tuner has the thermocoupler option to monitor EGT. I've also purchased an A-pillar gauge pod from Raul @ Stealth with the Boost, Trans. temp, & EGT by AutoMeter. So I'm here looking @ 2 thermocouplers. I know I need the Banks thermocoupler for the Six Gun, but I still want to use this AutoMeter EGT. Has anyone been here? What's the best avenue I'm looking for? It seems crazy drilling 2 holes in the exhuast manifold for 2 thermocouplers. Is this the way? Is there an alternative? Thanks in advance!

You can use either one of the thermocouples. It doesn't matter if it is Banks or not. Just make sure you follow the directions for the install of the autometer thermocouple and not the Banks, it might be different. You will have to mount it on the drivers side because the 6 gun wires that connect the thermocouple are too short to get to the passenger side.

Or you could run one pre and post turbo, or one on each manifold. Not necessary but its an option.

Thanks, dhanna6powerstroke. I DID notice the difference in lengths of the AutoMeter to the Six-Gun. I may or may not use this method just yet as I also like Vitalidle's idea, BUT: your information was very useful as now I know you don't actually need the Six-Gun thermocouple for the tuner. Much appreciated, my man!

Once again, Vitalidle, you are a wealth of knowledge! I like the pre & post idea. In your opinion(s), what locations would you use for the most accuracy on a pre/post deal? I would have tuning capabilities with the Six-Gun, so would it be more accurate as the pre or post? Thanks for keeping an eye out for me, bro!

You could place the post turbo in the down pipe however the pipe is too thin to use a tap thermocouple you would need to use the clamp style or weld a bung into the pipe for the thermocouple. Yeah I would put the six gun in the manifold as you can use the six gun to defuel I believe if you hit a maximum set egt

Know something? I really got into reading all the manuals in the Big Hoss bundle. The Power Elbow has a port you can install a thermocouple. Then I got to diggin' some more(climbing over & under the truck) I realized how easy it is to access the ext. manifold hardware. I can yank the manifold off, get a hole drilled, and follow through on the AutoMeter install. The way I've gotta get this install done is a day here, day there, so I've got some serious time.
