Help with boost gauge

Gauges came in and i was trying to install today, but what i thought would be the easiest one to install, is the biggest pain in the butt! Ive tapped my boost gauge into several different vacuum lines, and still im getting nothing. Can someone take a pic of where they tapped theirs in please?!?!?!

Im done with it for the day, but will be back at it tomorrow!

x2 from bruce51, just delete your AIH and tap into that, the best place for it. Somewhere online they sell a plug with a port in it to install a fitting for a boost line. Good luck!!!

Clean and simple.. mine is tapped for a sensor, but it sounds like you have a mechanical gauge, so here is the link for the mechanical fitting..
