on my manual they say you need to install on a place where all the tubes camed toghether, so you measure the temperature from 4cilinders toghether. But if you have an external wastegate, where to measure?
Same for the EMP (exhaust manifold pressure), where to place, before or after external wastegate?

Here is something I was considering, if we know that the #4 cyl is the most challenged when it comes to airflow and coolant temps maybe we should have the probe mounted closer to that cyl.

monitoring the hottest cyl would be safer than the sum off all four at the turbo inlet.
