Gauge sensor help

I am installing some gauges today and need to know where you guys are hooking up the sensor for the trans temp as well as the boost line. Is it best to eliminate the stock temp gauge and tie into it somehow? The boost line for the gauge I am installing is a vacuum hose with a tee. I'm having a hard time finding a vacuum line to tie into. Any help would be great!!!

on your boost you can go into your elbow on your intake if its stock you have to drill it, make sure you take your elbow off when you drill it so you do not get shaving into the intake manifold!!!
