routing MAP to the hot side... AND cold side?

Awhile back there was a thread that showed a reroute of the map line to the hot side of the intercooler circuit, siting quicker throttle response. I was all set to perform this mod, but wanted to drill and tap the spider pipe instead of having to weld a bung into the hot side pipe itself. Would the drill/tap/installation of a barb/npt be acceptable? Its quite a bit closer than the original threaders route which was more than half way down the hot side pipe.... THEN I got to thinking further... What if one Yd the cold side and hot side connections so that the MAP was reading a cumulative from both? Ive no idea what this would do..... Anyone have any speculation/experience as to why this should or should not be done? NEED INPUT.

"MOby" The big white bio-burning 03 7.3 4x4. 6637, straight piped stock exhaust, and a new "secret" blend of Haul asBLEEPsing mods and upgrades. Suffice to say, its still not the fastest, but its quick enough to worry lots!

Well heres the final deal. I went ahead and drilled/tapped the spider, and mounted up a 1/4 barb/NPT fitting. I left off routing hot/cold, calculating that it was rather superfluous, and would probably diminish the benefit of the hotside route, after all... Yes, even with the chip turned up it made a difference. Throttle response is more immediate and definite.
