EGT sending unit location

I've did some mild modifications to my 97 f250 7.3 , High frequency IDM, big flow exhaust including 3 inch down pipe and K&N air filter, tru-cool trans cooler. I'll be towing a #8000 toy hauler to Colorado for elk season. I'd like to install a EGT and trans temp gauge before leaving. Where is the best location on my 7.3 exhaust manifold for the EGT sending unit and same thing on trans temperature sending unit? If anyone has a pic that would be great. Thanks

Re: EGT sending unit location

The egt probe goes into the manifold at the rear.
I'm not sure about trans.

Thanks. I like pictures. Anyone have opinions on "Blue Max Tow" gauges ?

Re: EGT sending unit location

No but there are lots of opinions about your K&N filter, remove that sucker before it dusts your turbo
There are much better air filters out there for your diesel.

I love Autometer or ISSPRO gauges, the ISSPRO EGT gauge I installed is pricey but awesome, it was like $220 I think
EGT probe went into the drivers exhaust manifold just like the picture above.

Your transmission has a un used port in the side of the case that can be used to thread in a temp sensor, in 94-97 its an E4OD auto

Re: EGT sending unit location

Here is a good write up on gauge installation.

I have ISSPRO gauges and have had zero problems with them in 20 years. Others like Autometer.

You pay a little bit more for the better ones but you will have less problems with name brands.

I did a search on the Blue Max Tow gauges and they are Glow Shift. On the forums here there are two type of people that use the GlowShift product. Those that have problems with them and those that are going to have problems with them.

Spend a little bit more and get some good ones, you won't be disappointed int the better gauges.
