Default 04 Megan Racing up-pipe EGT

I have purchased a Megan racing up-pipe for my 2004 WRX wagon, and i want to know if anyone else has one because i want to add an autometer EGT sensor but im not sure if it will fit into the bung, does anyone have any experience here?

Much appreciated.

Sell it and buy reputable, last thing you want is a flange to crack, then your doing this mod twice and costing you twice as much.

An EGT probe should ideally be placed in the runner for cylinder 4. The only reason Subaru put an EGT in the UP was to monitor the pre-turbo catalytic converter.

Grimmspeed! The flex joint is immaterial, though they vary in quality with the rest of the piece...
