Boost Gauge

I want to install a three gauge package on my 2000 F250 with the 7.3L diesel. I am planning on a chip upgrade, and a 4" exhaust system, but as I was looking at the turbo and tubing into the intake manifold, I think there is already a boost sensor installed that I think is connected to the computer. It is in the spot where I would have put the sensor for the pod gauge. Is there another spot that the sensor can be installed or can I somehow use this location and disconnect the leads that send information to the computer? It would be better if I had a picture, I'll see about getting one so my description is easier to understand.

you dont have to drill and tap it to install. You can run it inline on the MAP tube. Works just as well....and its a lot easier!

I just finished installing a quad Gage pillar. I just bought a AIH delete plug that was already tapped for the NPT fitting. No splicing required. And I can easily reinstall the NPT plug if I need to remove the boost Gage later. The AIH delete plug goes for $15-20 thru most of the site sponsors. Plus it removes a restriction in the intake for better flow.

Either of those ways work: drill and tap the spider which I did this weekend, use the AIH tapped fitting, or use the MAP sensor line. Some people have reported some fluttering in the gauge off the MAP line.
