Re: EGT probe location

My EGT's have been reading low on my new Quadzilla Commander from what everyone else reports. Then I realized it was installed post-turbo! Guess that's what I get for paying someone else to do it!

Definitely install it on the driver's side exhaust manifold where it has turned up to the turbo so that you can check your numbers with everyone else.

Re: EGT probe location

What tank said, Dirvers side manifold, always want EGT readings PRE-TURBO, Dieselmanor is where i got my instructions for my gauge install. Just take your time drilling and tapping the manifold, best bet is usually to take the manifold off and do the work, but ive seen guys drill and tap with the manifold on, just used some grease on their drill bits. Someone please correct me if im wrong on this.
