This is what my tuner recommended: For a stock manifold, between cyl2 and cyl4. There is a flat spot on the cast that is perfect. For a header, on cyl3 because its closest to the turbo.

I was always put them at the number 3 cylinder. I read an article, and heard from a couple guys over the years that the design of the fuel rails in some instances will not allow as much fuel to the #3 cyl, causing leanout.

Many, many threads on this topic. Read and make your own decisions, I suppose. Personally, I don't think you should tune the car to the raw edge that running lean becomes an issue.

A man's perspective of 3 or 4 inches or a woman's perspective?
