They used a western snow plow relay. Best bet for relay....
586-902 Stancor General Purpose / Industrial Relays

And for the boost gauge, there is a line running from the passenger side intake to the map sensor, 'T' into that for boost

Let me add....for IDEAL locations....
Tap into the intake 'Y' for the boost guage (remove from truck first)
And for the EGT probe, the flat part on the bottom of the driver exhaust manifold

Make sure your parts store gave you a glow plug relay, rather than a glow plug module.
As for guage probe locations, do what fordman said. Whatever you do, DON'T put the EGT probe after the turbo, and then add 200 degrees to what your guage is reading. Simple thermodynamics proves this is half-assed at best.

they gave me a relay its a cylinder with 2 bigger posts and 2 smaller posts with wires already on them with a connector. do you need to pull the exhaust manifold to install the prob for the egt or can it be drilled out while its on the truck.

Sounds like a GPR to me, so you're good to go there.
It isn't necessary to remove exhaust manifold to drill for a egt probe. Make sure you have the truck running while you drill. This allows the shavings to be blown out, and prevents you from dusting the turbo with them.

Its really easy, only 2 bolts hold it on and there are a few fuel lines (make sure you get new line for re-assembly) here is a how-to thread.......
