well, alot of people delete their AIH, or air intake heater. Its on the left side of the Y pipe comming off the turbo(if your looking into the engine bay from the front.)

They get a fitting to fit that thread size and put a compression fitting in there and tie it in. Or, you can just T into the map line, and go from there. I didnt have an AIH, so i went the T fitting route.
