Boost gauge setup

Where do you hook up the hose to from the gauge? Is there a spot on the turbo that I am missing? I am sure it is something easy. Thanks for your help

You can either:

A. Tap in to the map sensor tube with a 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/4 Hose barb T (Go get a brass one from the HW store, the ones that come in the kits are usually cheap and too small, Somebody will post a pic shortly im sure)
B. Do the Air Intake Heater removal and get the plug with the boost fitting. I think ITP diesel has them for cheap.
C. Drill and tap the intake manifold

Joey. PS WAR DAMN EAGLE!!!!
