does anyone know a "pressure" line location which I can tap/intercept for a boost gauge.
**please note my gauge does not have negative reading and is a positive only, wont read in a vacuum line.

The intake manifold has a free nipple on it from factory, highly recommended to use that.

Just because your gauge dosnt read vacuum dosnt mean u shouldn't use a vacuum line to take your readings.......

There is no pressure line when the turbo is not boosting there will be vacuum just like a naturally aspirated engine and when boosting there will be pressure.
