Default Best place 2 tap for boost gauge on jdm 2.0?

Hi all, i'm wondering where is the best place to tap a boost/vacum line on the jdm engine? It doesn't have the T where the usdm one has on the bov line, so i was thinking of just adding one there or going to the turbo line itself.
Is there anyone best place to put it?
Thanks
brent

Just cut the BOV line and add your own T fitting.

do it on the BOV line; not the turbo itself. You're more interested in the amount of boost in the manifold than what the turbo is producing before the IC and (more important) the throttle body.

Cool, that makes it easy then. Does anyone like napa or one of those stores sell a T fitting that will work in that hose?
Thanks

i tapped mine on the hose to the intake manifold. i have read that you can get inaccurate readings from the BOV hose.
