    Best place for EGT sensor?

    I have a Perrin (catless) Up Pipe that's being put in tomorrow. And my Prosport gauges just came in. I'm wanting to ask where is the best place to drill for the EGT sensor? I did some reading and it looks as if I put the sensor in my catless up pipe it will burn up the sensor and potentially destroy my turbo. If so, would the exhaust manifold be my best bet?
    Thanks

    Exhaust manifold on the hottest cylinder is the absolute best place for it. Cylinder #3 is the recommended one. Some people recommend using the casting button on the manifold, but it's up to you on where you place it.
