Gauge Install, please help!

Ok a friend of mine is going to sell me a couple autometer guages, a Normal boost gauge -30vac +30boost, and a standard autometer EGT guage. Where do i tap in for a boost/vac signal for the guage? On my race car, it was just to any boost/vac source, im not sure on a diesel

Also, where is a good spot to install the EGT probe? and do you guys think its wise to install it in the manifold while still on the struck?

Please let me know guys, want to install them this weekend.

Oh btw, its a 95 PSD.

Put the boost gauge in the MAP sensor line, and yes put the pyro probe in the manifold. Its fine to put it in while on the truck.

The top of #10 is for dimming , and the bottom of #18 for the power. I just stripped the wire back and folded it over the leg if the fuse.
