EGT Probe Question / Concern

I just installed an pyro probe this weekend for my Quadzilla Recon Monitor. Everything works great and it looks nice.

However, after install and a few miles I decided to check the probe in the manifold and the transmission probe to ensure everthing was looking good.

I noticed that there is some black residue around the EGT probe where the threads meet the manifold. I started the truck, don't hear a leak and can't feel a leak with my fingers. The probe is in really tight and went in perfectly.

Should I be worried? Is it common to have a bit of residue? Maybe it will plug itself in time?

If you can not hear or feel a leak and you feel that you had good placement on it, I would leave it, and maybe just check it every now and then. If it starts to leak, you will def know it. It can get loud.

Dont worry, its common. Mine is like it too. If you drill it from the bottom, it will do that, nothing to worry about.
