Well if your talking about the "T" for the vacuum line. It needs to be tee'd into the hose going to the map sensor.

Or you can drill/tap the intake spyder or do the AIH delete and drill/tap a bolt that sits in there.

Is your line plastic or rubber? My gauges have a clear rubber hose that slips on a barb fitting.
