I have mine on the drivers side exhaust manifold. I drilled and tapped from the bottom and greased all of the drill bits and tap I used. Had it in for a week now and towed a small camper and have not had any issues. Hope this helps. It also helps if I finish reading your original post. 1200-1300 is going to be the upper end of the temps (I would start backing down at 1200 personally) and I usually try to let the EGT get back down to 350* before I shut her down.

I installed my EGT probe on the "elbow" of the drivers side manifold...pretty much right in the corner. Was easy to drill/tap and easy to run the cabling into the cab.

Be careful when tapping the manifold....you don't want to go too far in with the tap as the tap is tapered and you don't want the probe in too far.

I understand the search tool can be intimidating, but this has been covered many, many many times. If you follow the instructions your probe came with you can't go wrong.
