boost gage sensor location

So...I am researching gages and see that there are two different ways to install the boost sensor. One way is on a T to the MAP line and one has you tap it into the piping near the turbo. Pros and Cons for both ways? I am sure the easier way has a disadvantage but does it out weigh the ease of install? Opinions are welcomed. My truck is a 2000 F350 crew cab in my sig. I am leaning towards some ISSPRO gages but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

Re: boost gage sensor location

Easiest way is to delete the AIH and get the tapped plug for a gauge.

I just installed the AIH plug for the boost gauge on my dads 2001. Works very well and the gauge is really smooth and accurate.

Re: boost gage sensor location

Easiest could be ordering a pre threaded aih delete bolt.
That may be hard to do on an early 1999 though... Lol

Re: boost gage sensor location

I would go with the AIH delete with the boost tap. I did the MAP location and it resulted in a rattling boost gauge. I did the AIH version and it is smooth as silk.
