Question about transmission oil temperature sensor installation

I just got a 2000 F250 4x4 Std cab longbed, and figured I would start the mods with gauges to make sure I don't burn anything up. I went with Autometer C2 pyro, tranny temp, and boost gauges. The boost sensor is easy to T into the MAP sensor line; the pyro sensor was a little scary for me, but I just drilled right into the driver's side header and used the clamp method rather than tapping the hole. Now for the tranny sensor, and my question is: Is there an existing fitting that I can screw it into, or do I need to drill a hole and weld in the bung included, or is there another option?

Thanks!

there is a high pressure test port that has a plug in it, just remove the plug and install the probe. look where the purple wires are on mine and that is where it goes.no welding needed.

yeah yeah, i know, look at all the rust! that is compliments of The Utah DOT. all the salt brine solution and salt / sand they put on the roads in the winter really wreaks havoc on the bare metal parts. by the way, UTAH sucks just because of that.
