The best place is to drill and tap the aluminum intake elbow. You can also "T" off of the MAP line, but that may cause the needle to flutter on the gauge.

+1

If you don't want to drill and tap, Accufab makes a "Power Elbow" (doesn't add any power) that comes drilled and tapped already.

I did the MAP hose first and my gauge was fluttering like crazy.
I'm getting very little if any from the aluminum intake elbow.
