Screw in place the fitting without overtighting it - about 1/4 turn past finger tight is adequate. Overtitghting of the compression fitting can damage the probe.

Use a high temperature anti-seize compound on all threads.

Wiring
Route the thermocouple cable
Route the thermocouple cable

Plug the EGT/CHT K-Type Adaptor in one of the universal ports of the BOX.

Route the thermcouple cable from the box on the left of the seat (away from the engine) to the entine and plug the probe.

Avoid touching the thermocouple cable to the RPM pickup cable.

Make sure the cable is not loose or with very tight bends. If you fix it with cable ties be careful not to break the cable by fastening them too tight.

Use a cable tie to fix the connection between the yellow plugs, routed trough their holes.
