I know most guy puts the EGT probe in the end of the exhaust manifold. But i was wondering how much different would it be if you drilled and tapped the collector pipe that feeds the turbo. I would think it would get more of accurate reading from a mix of both sides of the engine.
Then again it could be a terrible idea but i wanted to throw the idea out there at least for discussion

if you want to pull the turbo, then get a drill in there go head. If you pull the collector they are a pain sometimes to align back up with the dowel. I would just drill/tap the driers side manifold. you will get relatively the same temps

The further away the EGT probe is away from the exhaust valves the more inaccurate it will be. A probe closer to the turbo will be affected by how much the exhaust cools as it goes up to the turbo which will very by how much air flow is going through the engine compartment at a given mph cooling off those up-pipes. If you ever put a truck on a dyno turn off all the shop lights and look at the engine I'll bet you'll say "Holy CRAP"!!!
