boost sensor help

Need some ideas on my best option for securing my boost sensor. Was really nervous about the egt sensor.but it.went smooth. Thought the boost would just be the map line t like ive done before but.it was the drill and tap sensor. Figuered it would be more accuarte that way so I gone ahead and tried it but I drilled little to close to the clamp lip and its hitting before it gets snug. Was thing of shaving the lip down in that one spot but wanted some more ideas.

If it's hitting the casting lip on the left on the second picture grind it off. It does nothing. It's just left over material from the casting process.

3-4 wraps of Teflon should do it. Keep the Teflon on the threads, you don't want any hanging over. Also make sure it goes the right way or it will just wad up and not do anything.
