EGT Probe Install Problem

Installing an A-Spec GT40 kit on my FD. Previous owner had welded in two 1/8 pipe fitting bungs into exhaust manifold for EGT probes. Bought the Pineapple Racing dual EGT kit. Fitting appears correct but the actual probe diameter is too large for the hole. If it was on the bench, I'd enlarge the hole, no problem. Unfortunately, the turbo kit is on the car. Only options I see are to find another K-type thermocoupler with a smaller diameter probe (initial internet search was unsuccessful) or pull the turbo, manifold, etc.

Anyone know where I might find such a thermocoupler or have an alternate idea?

let me get to the shop today and I've got a place that someone else showed me where to get type k thermo couplers and it's pretty skinny. I'll give you a link when I get to the office as it's saved over there in my favorites.

The probes are pre turbo so drilling without removing is not an option.

Thanks. I'll give Omega a look.
