Where to place boost gauge?

I'm getting ready to order my Isspro gauge kit, but I was curious where the majority of you are installing your Boost fitting? I've tried doing searches and found 1. T it into the map line. 2. Drill and tap into the Y-pipe 3. Delete AIH and install it there. I've read about some problems with gauge fluctuations using the map line, but obviously this is the easiest install. Where are most of you installing yours? If you do have problems with fluctuations using the map line, I assume it is as simple as replacing the T with a union in the map line, and just install it in one of the other two places?

MAP line is definitly the easiest and I assume it is accurate. I bought a new set of taps so I figured what the heck might as well drill it. Mine doesnt flucuate at all in the intake, real smooth operation

Is it a PIA to get the Y-Pipe out and re-install it?

You were able to have enough room to drill and tap it with it in the truck? All the tap installs that I have seen showed it on the back side towards the firewall, which looked like a PIA to access unless you pulled it out. What about shavings falling inside?

Thanks for the feedback so far. I finally just went and looked at what this MAP line is. I didn't realize it was strictly a piece of rubber hose that could be easily replaced. Now that I know that it is just a piece of rubber hose that I can get anywhere, I think I will start with the MAP line install first. Then if I find I have any fluctuations in the gauge, then I will switch over to the drill/tap install.

Yeah you can get rubber hose anywhere if you fudge it up somehow . Here is where I put mine anyways
