Do you recommend a probe thickness?
Thank you a lot guys.
The EGR port is not a good choice. Much better to drill and tap a convenient spot
near the turbine and (gently) bend the probe to reach the desired point. Within
an inch (25mm) of the turbine is close enough. The exhaust temp is stable there.
A thin (1/8" aka 3mm) probe will bend easier.
