banks intercooler and high ram not npt port?

I just got my banks intercooler w/high ram and boost tubes in the mail, for my 2006. I just cracked the box to make sure no parts were damaged in shipping, all looked well. However I did not see any pre-drilled npt ports in the high ram for my boost gauge. WTF? I thought all the aftermarket elbows had npt ports with plugs so you could use as needed. Am I missing something? Do all you guys with banks ICs have had to drill and tap the elbow to run your boost gauge? I guess its not that big of a deal, i did drill and tap my stock elbow with no issues, i just assumed an aftermarket one would have came pre-drilled?

correct. banks does not port their elbow. you will have to purchase a CFM+ large mouth elbow to have your npt port.

that sucks though that you spent all that money and it doesnt have a port you would think banks would have thought about that

You're probably looking for a 1/8" NPT tap. I forget the drill bit size but it will or at least should have the required drill bit stamped next to the tap size.
