Boost gauge install help

I just won the retard of the week award. I am putting in my gauges this weekend and bought an aih fitting from riff raff to plug the boost tube into. When I went to put it in I realized that I have a early 99 and the aih is not the same. Does anyone know if I can run to the store and get a "t" fitting (The size). I dont really want to take things apart and drill and tap!
