Question EGT Gauge installation!?

Hey, I have read the instructions and am still curious. Have anyone installed an EGT gauge on their LBZ, and if so...Where. I would greatly appreciate photos.

Thanks.

They all go in the manifold. Take out your wheel well liner and you will see exactly what they are talking about.

I'm off next friday and saturday if you need help. Or you can call anytime and I'll talk to ya. I have had my fender thingys off a bunch of times and still using the original clips. Cheap ******* I am.

To Clarify, are you asking where to locate the gauge itself or the probe. It seems everone is assuming the probe...

edit: What brand did you buy? Or have you purchased one yet? I have that silly 1/8-27 npt tap also.

No it works fine but i have only used it twice, and both things were on my truck. I guess when my friends wise up and want gauges it might come in handy.
