Boost guage hose location install

Hey everyone,
Being I have to replace my boost gauge hose, I was wondering what is the best location for most accurate manual gauge reading? I was hunting around the web, and found an AIH plug W/ boost fitting (link below). Question, what location gives most accurate reading, off the manifold hose, or like this plug gives, from the air intake horn? Or does it make a difference?


Ford 7.3L Air Intake Heater Plug with Boost Fitting & 0541 Eliminator Powerstrok


Thanks

I don't think it makes much of a difference between the map sensor and the AIH plug... they are pretty much in the same exact area...

I have both and they both read the same, so whatever is easier for you. I like the intake elbow myself.

I just tee'd into the MAP line. Works pretty good. Wish I would have gotten a 30psi gauge insted of 60. but ya, MAP worked good. AIH delete plug with a fitting would be pretty choice tho.
