I have a dual wideband already so that I can monitor each bank (V6 motor). But I still can only tell if one bank is not doing well. Which can be just one of the 3 cylinders.

I'm looking for a 6 probe EGT set up that will not leave me broke. This way I can monitor each cylinder and make changes where it's actually needed per cylinder.

Anyone here use something like this?

[googles] Wow, I paid almost $40 for the type K thermocouple for my EGT back in 1995, now they're $4 on eBay...

TCDirect.com shows a 6-channel thermocouple switchbox for $160.

There are handheld digital thermocouple readouts on eBay for under $10, if you don't mind plugging and unplugging the connectors to find the odd cylinder. Heck, they're cheap enough you could buy six of them...
