on the passanger side behind the hot side of the intercooler tube there is a black plate, under there is a plug which is the map sensor, and connected to that is the pressure line you speak of

I would tap the intake though as many have experianced a tapping sound out of the boost gauge when tied into the MAP line. I hope to change this on my truck soon.

My Boost Guage Hooked Into The Hose Of The Map Sensor With A Barbed Tee Fitting. The Boost Guage Hose [1/8th Inch] Tied Into The Top.works Great Hope This Helps.
