Default A good source for the Boost Gauge?

Ok guys I just finish drilling and taping my turbo so that I can get a good source for my wastegate, now I need another source like this (before throttle body) for my boost gauge.
Can I install a T fitting from the turbo or must I drilled and tap another plug for my boost gauge?

why before your throttle body...that would give you a false reading wouldnt it???? it wouldnt read vacum as soon as you close the throttel...

dont you want to read vac?

my boost guage is in place of the useless little black thing on the back of the intake mani, right above the iat sensor... (the source is right next to the iat sensor, its the nipple coming off the back of the mani.)

I have a boost guage only, I don't have the boost/vacumm guage.
It says in the installation instruction that I has to be before throttle body so either I tap the turbo again or tap somewhere in the cold side intercooler pipe (before the throttle body)

i used one of the ports right off the intake manifold.
running one right off the turbo will have an inaccurate reading.
you will loose some boost between the turbo and intake manifold.
id personally want to see how much boost my motor is consuming, not how much my turbo is putting out.
nothing wrong with seeing vacuum. if your in vacuum, your out of boost.
vacuum = better gas mileage.

welll if its boost only...i think you might still want to put it in the mani...because the turbo will always be spining...and it will give you a false reading...

sweet. straight up boost gauge.

u can still put it after the TB. it doesnt matter. splice into your stock FPR line with a T. done.

or T into your wastegate line. done.

there is nothing "false" about reading the pressure from the compressor.

I have an Edelbrock manifold, Im running a vucum hose from the manifold into a fastturbo vacuum block, should I run the boost gauge from there? that was my original plan.

Run it right to your vacuum manni. I used to run mine right to the cruise control nipple on the back of the manifold. I'll be running it to the vacumm manni now.

FYI...the little nipple on the back of the IM is for the purge solinoid.

So just to make sure of what im doing, for my autometer boost only gauge, I will connect it to the from a source AFTER the throttle body, in my case it will be connected to my vacuum block which is connected to my Edelbrock manifold. Right??? Also can I use a silicone hose insted of that plastic hose that came with the kit?
