Question about the pyro for Edge.

I just got my Edge Juice with Attitude. I already have the pyro thats on my other gauges. Can I just tap into the wire and hook them up together or do I need to redrill another pyro hole? If I can just wire it in. please inform me on how to do so. Thanks

word on the street is....its a bad idea. It has worked before but theres also been some messed up pyro readings from trying this.

I always put the second pyro post turbo for a comparison of pre to post turbo EGTs.

Type K thermocouples are calibrated for their length, so splicing into an existing cold junction can cause accuracy issues - but probably not an issue unless you require NIST standards.

Unless you just want an auxiliary EGT gauge, you might consider using it as a pre-CAC temp gauge... can be a handy tuning aid!

well another option you have is what size is the pyro you already have? if its the same drill sized hole, and the thermocoupler is tapped with a 1/8 npt, then why not just take the other probe out of the coupler, and screw the one with the edge into, remember the coupler is whats already in your maniflod, not the pyro, the probe should just drop into the other coupler, and screw right in... just my :2cents

Some people like pre turbo (that's where you'd want the edge) and post turbo pyro readings. You could do that set up if you found that info useful.
