Boost Probe Location

Hello all,
Just want some input. Ive read different opinions out here. Some say I need to drill and tap my probe into my Spyder Pipe because the line off the MAP sensor is inaccurate in its readings. While others say the MAP line T is the way to go. Who is correct. I know the MAP line hose comes off the bottom of the Spyder pipe so I dont understand how the readings would be inaccurate. Just wanted to see what was the best way to do this.

Thanks

you can put a t fitting in the map line that is what many people do. i did the Air intake heater delete from riffraff and it comes with a optional boost fitting. i personally like mine. it gets rid of the AIH and it provides a spot for my boost gauge.

Dodge drain plug, suitably modified replacement for the AIH.

Very nice. I was wondering how to do this, but never got around to it.

Thanks everyone. Like that drain plug mod....nifty thinking. I was bored at work so I went ahead and taped the Spider pipe and installed a new map sensor hose. Ill test it all out on the way home today.
