Tapping for boost and MAP

I have my boost gauge and MAP sensor tapped on the turbo side of the IC right now. It seems to have better response vs. tapping after the IC. I teed the line and run my boost gauge as well.
Is it better to run the boost gauge after? You would see the pressure after the drop from the IC if there was any.

Yes, you could tell what the pressure drop was by checking it on both sides.
As far as what side you run it on will be determined by what you want to see.
I always install them in the MAP sensor line.

I had mine on the Map line "T" ed into the tube on my 99. On this 03 I have it tapped into the spyder on the cold side of the CAC, boost NUMBERS seem lower, but are more accurate I would assume. (You are seeing the actual pressure going INTO the motors heads) Is there a RIGHT OR WRONG way? Not really. Heck I was on these websites for quite a while before I heard of anyone tapping their Intercooler spyder. It mostly started when people wanted to eliminate the intake heater. I think.
And David is happy with it going to the map sensor still, what ever works for you!

Re: Tapping for boost and MAP

I have my T'ed into the map sensor line as well. I just like to see what is going to the motor and not what the turbo is making.
