Best Boost gauge plumbing

Where do yall recommend tying in my Boost gauge plumbing? Is there a better more accurate place than tying into the map sensor? Thanks for the help.

Tap the intake elbow for the best reading.
Tapping into the MAP sensor line is easier...but not as accurate and will make the gauge flutter on some trucks.
