Best place to install the boost sensor?

I'm getting ready to install either Iispro or AutoMeter Z's pillar gauges plus do the AIH delete. I see where there is a plug from DP that allows you to plug in the boost sensor in the AIH hole. I'm thinking it's a win / win mod. Is that the optimum place to go in?

I really rather not have to drill another seperate hole in my housing when there's one already there.

I just drilled and tapped the spider... it was really easy, (way more than I thought) and didn't take too long, it's aluminum, so it cuts like buttah!

^ Same. Although I was told it was magnesium, not aluminum. Either way it is a soft metal, so don't over tighten the fittings.

I went on another site and within an hour got multiple feedback saying the existing AIH hole is the best, most logical place to connect the boost sensor.

Have you figured out what model of engine the drain plug is from? or are all the Cummins plugs the same size?

Excuse me? I'll type slow so you can follow along.. Did you happen to see my first post on this thread? It’s a rather large picture with a cat? Said Picture, stated I was interested in the answer you found. My next post stated that I saw your duplicate thread over at PSN, what I did not say was that I could not find the thread again. So I came back and asked you "Have you figured out what model of engine the drain plug is from? Or are all the Cummins plugs the same size?" I thought it was rather strait forward question. I didn’t know that I was intruding on your thread, I guess I’ll just start a duplicate thread asking the very same question you did.. Have yourself a great day, and.
