All EGT probes, regardless of application should be installed at a location
which would be 1/2 the primary tube diameter from the head surface. So
if the ID of your primary tubes is 1.5", the hole or bung should be located
.75" from the head side of the flange. You may place it at any angle to
allow access to header bolts, etc.
This is a position that's considered a "standard" for location in the automotive world, and allows people to compare apples with apples.
