Boost gauge tie in

Hey guys,
I bought a used 03 Exc. and it came with the boost gauge unplugged...as well as the EGt gauge. I hooked up the EGt but didnt find the tie into the vaccum line on the engine for the boost. I had a supercharged mustang and just tied right into the intake vaccum lines but havent found any in the diesel intkae yet. I've heard of people t-ing off of the MAp but would rather not do that. Any suggestions, or am I going to have ot tap the intake elbow? Thanks

Just tap the intake elbow. Once it is removed, it literally takes like 5 minutes.
