I am wondering what the best place is to put the probe for the EGT? I am installing a Bully Dog Outlook monitor and they suggest to put it post turbo in the elbow. Is there a better place?

I have mine mounted in the manifold right before the turbo. They say it gives a more accurate reading of the actual temps.

The best place to mount the probe is inside of cylinder #4. You have to drill a hole in the head and tap it for NPT, but it works great. You can see the temp pulses with every stroke of the cylinder. It's awesome. :thumbsup :thumbsup :thumbsup

I was thinking that the manifold would be better. I wonder why BD says to put it post turbo?

I'm not sure why they would say that, but you lose a few hundred degrees through the turbo, meaning your pyro would be a few hundred degrees off. Probably something you don't want.

Has anybody on this site ever open the hood of a pete and look at probe placement on a large car.... post turbo no questins...... if you are smart enough to read the guage you should be smart enough to pick your foot up at 1300...if not sell your truck and buy a gasser...............
