Help installing boost gauge

I've got a 2012 F250 6.7L and I am trying to figure out where to install the sending unit for a autometer mechanical boost gauge. I have searched high and low and have not found anyone with any info on this. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Just clarifying but doesn't a mechanical gauge not have a "sending unit", thus being mechanical? Just asking... If you need the install sending unit, you would obviously need it in the engine by to attach to something on the manifold that sees boost (i.e. no crank case or brake booster for vacuum actuated brakes). So it is mechanical or digital?

It is mechanical. No sending unit. It has a plastic line that runs from the gauge to the boost source. Anybody?
