Talking EGT Sensor Location????? Help Please.

I just ordered some new gauges for my truck. Where is the best location for an Exhaust Gas Temperature sensor? I've read about in the up-pipe before the turbo and also in the manifold. Anyone have suggestions? I was planning on going into the manifold, but if anyone has had a bad experience with it PLEASE let me know. I also got a transmission temperature sensor and gauge, is there a spot on my 6 speed manual transmission for that sensor? I'm towing alot of weight across country in about 2 weeks and need to get these done.
Thanks, Justin

The two most popular places are the drivers side manifold, or right after the turbo in the downpipe. Both of these locations will work, BUT you will get totally different readings as the EG is cooler after the turbo. As suggested above, do a quick search and there is tons of reading on this subject to help you decide which location is best for you.

Good Luck!
