See Pic... This is a drill and clamp, but for the drill and tap, just hit the manifold.

so if i want to tap it i should drill the manifold itself, about 4 to 6 inches to the right on your pic?

I put mine in from the top. Drivers side manifold, hold your drill beside the master cylinder pointing down.

Why? That is a very difficult area to get too, your not getting any better reading there, and the drill shavings are going to fall into the manifold rather then into your eyes...

From below you can see everything, and then you can run the wires thru the Auto tranny cable gromet... Very easy...:Thumbup:

Looked easier to get to than from the bottom, A little grease on the drill bit and no worries about shavings. Pryo leads are in the engine compartment away from any road grime, and leads run through the automatic block off plate in the firewall. Just a differant way of doing things.
