flyKen74,

When you say 1/8" NPT fitting for an EGT, which part are you referring to? Most thermocouples (EGT probes) make use of some sort of compression fitting that allows you to adjust the probe depth in your exhaust. This portion usually also makes up the male threaded portion of the 1/8" NPT. The female threaded portion that would coordinate with this is either made by drilling and tapping a sufficiently thick piece (i.e. cast iron exhaust manifold) or by using a female 1/8" NPT weld-in bung. If it's the bung you're looking for, I'd check with a local parts store and ask them for an Auto Meter #2260. If it's the compression fitting, you're probably going to have to find a Defi dealer. The only two that I know of are Genesis Racing Development, and AMS in Arlington Heights.

If you are drilling and tapping the manifold you don't need a fitting. Screw the Defi sensor directly into the manifold.

Don't bury the 1/8" tap either. It's taperred, tap in a couple threads then blow it out and try your fitting. If it needs to go in deeper then tap it a bit more. If you bury the tap your fitting will be loose and you will have a leak. Should'nt need any sealant if you do it right but you might try high temp thread locker if you want.
