The boost gauge should have come with some clearish hard plastic tubing and a brass fitting. The best place to get a source for boost is the intake elbow. Just drill and tap it for the brass fitting. If it didn't come with the fitting, I bet you could get it at Lowes. It's just a 1/8" NPT male ell to 1/8" compression I'm pretty sure. Alternatively, you could just stick a tee inline with the map sensor. The trans gauge should have a sender that just threads into the test port on the trans pan. There's just a pipe plug in there now. Then the wire runs from it to the gauge unless you have some kind of strictly mechanical one that I've never seen. The pyro probe is usually also 1/8" NPT. You just tap the driver side manifold near the up pipe and thread the bung in.
