    Best place to drill/tap for boost gauge (2009 SHO)

    Where are you guys tapping into your intake manifolds for boost and BOV?

    Tapped into the short rubber hose between the MAP sensor and the intake?

    Yes. I would only use this for a boost gauge. Separate lines for a bov or rrfpr. Just in case they leak you would not want an incorrect signal going to the map sensor.

    I drilled and tapped both zip tie bosses for seperate lines for my BoV and boost gauge. You could also use a Y fitting on a single hole instead.

    I tapped both ends of the intake at the zip tye boss, easy and looks like it belongs. There is always risk when tying in to the map sensor line, any increase in the volume of that line will slow response time of the map sensor, plus the obvious potential for a leak causing havoc.

    I did 3 separated holes with 3 separated fitting and dedicated vacuum lines.
    - blow off valve
    - RRFPR
    - boost gauge.

    maybe not needed 3 indipendent lines... but I like my setup.
    where?
    one on zip tye boss like Riva suggest
    and two on the other side (near intercooler) of intake manifold
