Default Autometer EGT question, cant find the one with the probe!

I did a couple searches and found some good info on other gauge compnaies, but I already have autometer...so....I have boost and air/fuel autometers in the ProComp/Ultralite series in silver. As I keep modding my motor I need an EGT being that the air/fuel does nothing but annoy me. Anyone know which autometer egt to get that comes with the probe? Does the probe bolt in to the stock egt location on the uppipe? Thanks in advance...
P.S. the autometer site sux

Its easy, your not reading there page, part #4344 comes with thermocoupler thats the probe, if your not sure go to Summit racing and put in the part number atm-4344 you can see it comes with everything you need.

And you don't want to put it in the UP. You want to put it in the Driver's side exhaust manifold.

There is a little "button" on the side of the exhaust manifold. The manifold will have to be drilled & tapped for a 1/8" NPT so you can thread the probe in. Either you can do this yourself or you can get it done. Some dealers have done it. I just don't know if ALL dealers will do it.

Why the Driver's exhaust manifold and not the UP or DP? You will get a more accurate reading of your exhaust temps in the exhaust manifold, and the #4 piston seems to be the area of greatest concern for high temps/failure, if any.

...if you mean a 'header'...then it is very likely too thin to 'tap' for an egt bung....you will need it welded on.

I believe you can also use the TeamRip probe. That is supposedly a very high quality unit and pretty cheap. I don't have a link sorry, but a search should get you what you need. Just figured i'd throw some other options out there. Good luck.

heres some food for thought, i just got an autmeter egt and the instructions for tubro cars is to place the probe 1-2 inches for the turbo exhaust outlet. on the non turbo cars it states to place it 1-2 inches from the cylinder head. completely opposite of what i have been reading.
