Interesting... despite the noise of working next to the running diesel engine, is it easy to do without getting burned? I assume you do this thru the wheelwell with the inner fender pulled down?? And why did you choose the manifold for sensor placement? Is that the recommended placement?I did this while the motor idled, which blows all the shavings out. .........I have since done other trucks and never had a problem..............go for it..........you'll learn something new and save yourself some bucks.
The manifold gives you pre turbo temps that are I would say more important, doing it post turbo the egt's have already cooled down and you don't really know what egt's your tubo was feed. When the duramax is idling, the temp of the exhaust isn't too hot its barible.Interesting... despite the noise of working next to the running diesel engine, is it easy to do without getting burned?

Here's another that's on this siteGo to dieselmanor.com , you can look at the install instructions they have for our trucks. The drill & tapping is the easy part, wiring the gauges to dim with the gauge cluster & routing the wires wore me out. Also you might re-think drilling with the engine running, if you break that drill bit off in the exhaust your turbo is the next stop down the pipe.
forgot about that what a ***** .... :anitoof:i just took my manifold off and drilled it thtat way. welll that is after i snapped my drill bit so i had no choice(. just make sure you use plenty of cuting oil and you will be fine or take the manifold off and be 100% safe
post manifold or pre manifold, and why passenger side and not driver sideIt's easy. It shouldn't take you more than an hour to do the whole thing. Yes, you can do it while running without getting burned. Remove the fender liner to get to the manifold. You have to install it post-turbo to get accurate readings, install it on the passenger side manifold. Take your time, follow the directions and you have nothing to worry about. You will be surprised at how easy these manifolds are to drill and tap.
Yeah I did alil research. There a few they had problems with. EFI fourm says use non-grounded k-type thermocouple. Heres the link of the thread if anyone would like to read. Thanks Firej you just need to install your egt probe and then run it over to the v2 it wires into the orange blocks on the back of the v2
