I guess I'll get a new elbow with the hole already in it. Any votes on which is the best.

Drilling the intake elbow it very easy, no need to spend $100 on a elbow with holes in it already. To take the elbow off you just need to take the hose clamp off and remove the 4 10mm bolts. Then use a 21/64 drill bit and a 1/4 npt tap. Should take about 15 minutes including taking it off the truck and putting it back on.

I'll second this... It really is very easy and the most you'll need to buy is a $2.50 tap instead of $150 elbow... Just take your time drilling and running the tap in and you'll be fine.

is the 1/4 tap the same for all the brands of boost gauges?

why dont you just tap into the map sensor with a vacum tee its bolted to the top part of the a/c box on pass. side has wire loom around it makes it look like wiring but its the vacum line goes to the intake less than 1ft away i just cut mine put in the tee with a little silicone for insurance no drilling required
