    EGT install?

    I'm planning on getting the Blitz BLM EGT gauge (I already have the boost gauge), but was just wondering how hard and where does the wiring/temperature sensor go, and how much will I expect to pay for install, thanks!

    After searching it looks like you should either weld in a bung or drill and tap near the #4 cylinder.

    Just some info I found.
    "I've been looking to install an EGT guage myself, and have heard the same thing about tapping into the header. My one question is if you have an uppipe with an EGT sensor bung, and you place it in a new location in your header, how do you plug the bung? Would you just leave in an EGT sensor that is not connected to anything or do they sell aftermarket bung plugs =) Sorry bout the hijack."

    I have mine tapped in the driver side manifold, and a bolt plugging the bung in the uppipe. Works like a charm
