    placement for egt probe

    I have talked to a couple of people and they have told me to put my egt probe in cyl # 3 and 6 inches from the block in the header. My question is how long is the probe? Wont it hit the other side of the header, and all i need to do is use a tap and die tool. The threads will seal enough to now cause a leak? Any pictures of this placement would be helpful. Thanks

    I have a 2002 wrx

    I wrote up a tutorial on how to tap for a egt probe- it's in this fourm- most use the casting button on either manifold.

    You won't have to worry about leaks- most call for a tapered (pipe) tap thread.
