egt guage install question

203 f350 4" exhaust. Where is the most practicle place to install the EGT probe. I am trying to figure out if I have to drill and tap the manifold, or if I can use the clamp provided with the probe. pros and cons to pre and post turbo install???

Also what kind of antifreeze are we supposed to use. I noticed today that my overflow is low.

Thanks again

Joe

Most install the probe into the driver side manifold. Drill and tap. Some install in the up pipe with the clamp. Pre turbo is the place to install it, more acurate temp reading as to what the actual cylinder temps are. Post turbo might be easier to install, but not nearly as acurate.

As far as I know, the 2003 use gold coolant.

Absolutely install pre-turbo, might as well hang it out the window if you install post turbo. Drill and tap exhaust maniold driver's side, start w small bit and work up, new bits go thru it like butter. Use the recommended thread lock on the tip and it will be fine.
