gauge install question

For those who've installed boost gauges....which is the best method, putting a "T" fitting in the MAF line, or drill and tap? "T" looks easier, but not sure of the efficiency.
thanks

I just did the T fitting. It seems close enough for me. I figured it wasnt as important as the pyro or tranny gauge so I just got it done. Ill probably tap it once I fix all the problems I have and get bored one day..

The Map line works good. I have done several trucks this way and have never had a issue.

Is that just at idle or all the time?

6.0's are notorious for that, when ever I install in a 6.0 I drill and tap the intake horn, but 7.3's are fine to use the Map line.
