Where to tap manifold for boost gauge
I have a forum member coming down to my house so I can install his dynotune boost gauge for him. He is still running the stock IC so there is no IC block off to thread the sensor into. Where is a good place to drill and tap in the manifold for this.

Is the plastic manifold thick enough to drill and tap so im able to screw the sensor into the manifold?

After one of the plastic nipples is opened with a small drill bit, the presure-sensing hose goes over the nipple and is secured with a small tie wrap... Ron

Im pretty sure he wants to run a digital gauge with a sender that needs to be screwed into the manifold or somwhere else to sense the boost. Not sure if you can just drill and tap the manifold i wouldnt have thought it would be thick enough. R88

He just needs to open up one of the runners, put a short vaccum line on runner, then put 1/8 NPT fitting on vaccum line to accept the boost gauge sending unit.
Even when you tap the manifold block off your still not suppose to put sending unit direct on manifold.

You can drill/tap just above the MAP sensor in between the #3 and #2 intake runners.
When dynotune says not to put the boost gauge sending until directly into the manifold they are taking for granted you are screwing it into a metal manifold and heat will damage it. We don't have to worry about that with our plastic manifolds.
