Hey all.

I installed an uppipe and I have a Defi EGT. The problem is that the Defi pressure fitting and probe do not fit the bung and it has been impossible to find a sleeve to use for an adaptor. I thought about just using the stock EGT and taping into the existing sending wires for the gauge, but I didn't know if the voltage from the stock EGT was the same.

Has anyone taken this approach? I do not want to make a new tap.

Thanks.

The problem is, the stock EGT bung is too far from the engine to get an accurate reading. You want your probe to be as close to the valves as possible. This means putting the probe in the exhaust manifold.

Also, I'm not sure if the stock egt and the defi egt are the same type of thermocouple. I assume they are both K-Type, but who knows?
