You're going to need to cut the mapline and put it there. I had to go to AutoZone to get a different T piece since the one that came with my gauges wasn't big enough to fit in the line. You need a 1/4 inch T. I'll see if i can find a picture of the location of the map line for ya. It's basically on the passenger side, running from a small black box to the x-pipe. I did some searching through different gauge makers and found it that way.

Here is a link for ya that has pretty detailed instructions on putting that sucker in. It's not too hard. Some of the threads I've looked at say that you can drill and tap into the intake elbow, but this is so much easier and those threads are mostly speaking of 6.0s.
Good luck.

Or if you plan to drill and tap, drill into the black peice that comes off the front of the turbo..... BUT TAKE IT OFF TO DO IT!
