I could be wrong but most boost gauges (electronic) use a 1/8 NPT. Use a 11/32 drill bit.

Did you buy a boost gauge or an EGT gauge?

Boost gauge most people either buy the intake heater plug which has a port for your boost gauge or they put a T fitting into their MAP sensor line and connect the gauge to that.

If your talking about an EGT gauge then it should be put into the driver side manifold and a 1/8" NPT tap is what you will want unless yours has a 1/4" NPT end on it then you would use that. When you buy the tap some come with the right bit, some dont so you can just ask the parts store what one to use with it or google it, i cant remember off the top of my head.

I was thinking of an EGT probe! See, I said I could be wrong!

For my boost gauge I am using the plug I put in when I did my IAH delete.

I put a tee inline with the tubing going to the trucks boost sensor (proper name is escaping me). No drilling needed which is a plus cause the Y pipe is like $100 used and tough to track down.
