There's two schools of thought on EGT probe location, because the turbocharger can really draw heat energy from the gas (up to 250 degrees C). If you tap the manifold just before the turbocharger...

There's a good chance that you've fried something else in the system. 20A is a fair bit of power to run through the wiring behind the dash, and heating it up to the point where you can smell it could...
