You can put it at the turbo inlet, if you have a turbo. That will still be somewhat accurate. Or you could get one of these bad boys. That's what I've got, but have yet to install.

oh thats even better!! I like the idea of having a gauge on both banks.. it can also be used as an aid for troubleshooting weak cylinders or injector issues (the HEUI Love to bugger up injectors)...

i see where you need to buy lead wires separate, im assuming it comes with probes that you drill and tap the manifold for? or are there seperate probes to buy too?

That's a good point on the diagnostics.

I didn't get that number specifically, I bought just the simple gauge off of ebay for like $100 and then bought the probes and leads separate. There's a whole bunch of options on the site for probe style and lead length but that specific number was the only one with a picture, which is why I used it. You can find better deals on all of that stuff if you have the patience to look and verify.

On the 190 hp rated TE444, you will never get the exhaust hot enough to worry about melting anything, the engine is power and torque limited because of the ratings of the 545 tranny
