Just a heads up for you, you don't need a boost/vac gauge. PSD's only create boost, no vacuum. So you never see any vacuum on the gauge.

You have a couple options for tapping in to the truck:
1. Cut the MAP line and put a 't' in it (this is how I have mine)
2. Remove the AIH and get a plug with a fitting
3. Tap into a CAC hose

You can pretty much put it anywhere on the intake trac after the turbo. It's really up to you. Here are a few options for ya.
