Get a T fitting and Put it inline with the line going to the map. That prolly the easiest way. There are other ways though.

Thanks. So here comes the stupid question. Where is this line to the map sensor. I just got the truck and don't know a thing about diesels.

This is where your map sensor is.

This just gives you an idea of how to T it off. Pretty simple

Was there any difference of a reading after moving the mounting from the map to the AIH or were they both the same. I know they should be the same but ya never know.

They were pretty much the same. I heard the AIH plug was a more accurate reading, but I really didn't notice any difference....
