You can buy several different egt monitors and probes.You can get them to monitor one cylinder, 2 cylinders or all 8. Anywhere from about 100 bucks to thousands for some data loggers that monitor everything, including the last time you went potty! Some weld in some have a clamp on style probe that holds the probe in the header. Snow mobiles have nothing to do with it. I even have a new computech monitor and weld on or clamp on probe for a real good price if you want to message me I will send pics to you.

Ok sorry, I guess I misunderstood.
If you have an extra snowmobile handy go for it 8)
They are not too common around here

It's still an egt. It's not a snowmobile part. I ran them on snowmobiles when I raced them and I've used them on my drag car. It's just an instument or gauge to measure exhaust temps.

I have one I'll sell you cheap also if your interested. Just pm me.

Just Googled up EGT kits, and there are hundreds of them, including Jegs.

Yeah, we have quite a few here in Michigan too, but I don't think any of them come standard with egt's on them. Good luck. :roll:
