The best place is on the intake elbow. Remove it, drill and tap the back side (closest to the firewall) and thread your boost port in.

What warning lights? Never heard of that. I just drilled the elbow and have no problems. If you "T" into the map line, it's just the same as drilling the intake elbow. Just not as accurate and could cause gauge flutter.

What kind of gauges? I'm not sure if your fittings are exactly the same as mine, but my boost fitting is an 1/8th" NPT thread.
