Pyro probe

Will it make a difference if I install the egt probe in the turbo exhaust housing or should it be down where header meets up pipe, only reason I ask is because I took out ebpv and where the shaft came the housing I pressed out bushings, tapped and installed 1/2 npt plugs where shaft was. So I already got threaded ports to install probe in an easy location

Re: Pyro probe

Pre-turbo, easiest spot is drivers side exhaust manifold. Where the header meets the up pipe. Post turbo will be much hotter.

Re: Pyro probe

I got a band clamp from glow shift... But it was improperly tapped by them (fine threads and course threads don't mix). So I have a funky set up with my probe involving a hose clamp, safety wire and DOW 736 Red RTV.... Figure if safety wire and red RTV can handle the heat a turbine puts out, it can handle the exhaust on my powerstroke. But I installed it on the passenger side manifold right where it meets the uppipe... There's a nice flat spot there

Re: Pyro probe

I wouldn't put it in the housing, the closer you can get to the cylinders the more accurate your reading is gonna be, it's really not for turbo temperature, it's for cylinder temperature so you dont burn a hole in a piston, etc. Mines in the driver side manifold.
