Boost and map line

I am in the middle of installing a 7.3 Intercooler on my 1996 F350 CCLB. My question is where is the best place to put the boost and map line, hot side or cold side, in the pipes or the e99 spyder and the pros and cons of both?

Thanks,

Phil

Install it in the hot side pipe, the spyder would be more ideal tho, the sooner it reads boost the faster it sends fuel

I suppose that is true. Phil did you get the correct turbo to spyder clamp?

Will the gauge flutter if I tee into the map line or is it best to tap the spyder twice? Yes I have the right clamp ther is even a oring type of seal that goes between the turbo and spyder.

Supposedly it does not flutter as much, but no experience as of yet, auto meter has a suppressor for their gauges for that

There is zero flutter with it in the map line in the hot side close to turbo.
