I could be wrong, but wouldn't you want your source for the gauge to be the same as your MAP sensor? In which case, the intake manifold is probably the most likely candidate...I'm not sure where the cruise control vacuum line is located though.

the cruise is on the passenger side where the vaccum control diapham is. i believe that people have connected to the vac line going to the pressure sensor or vac on the bov... if this is incorrect someone please point me in the right direction... thanks

Sean I replied to you PM but I might as well post it here also.



I tee'd mine off of my boost sensor line. You can use any vaccum source after the throttle body.
