I think many do it back on the rear of the motor somewhere, to see the actual pressure at the main bearing? There is a 1/8" NPT plug back there?
Otherwise you can do it on the HPOP reservoir, but in some peoples opinion that is not the most accurate place. (Mine too from what I have read on the forums)

I just did mine today, there is a 1/8th inch NPT port with a male square head plug in it on the drivers side of the block, just in front of the bell housing. There is also 2 more plugs in the same general area with female square head plugs - don't use these, 1 is coolant, the other is a metric thread.
