I have seen that the majority of people tap into the FPR hose to get their boost readings. However, I have also read where the vacuum line from the DV can be used.
First Question: Are there any other places to get a boost reading?
Second Question: Which will give the most accurate reading?
My techincal know how...or lack thereof
prevents me from making this decision on my own. Thanks in advance for all info. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

FPR line goes directly to the manifold. It is probably the most accurate. Do not use the DV line
Why not?

Because of the answer he already gave you

Where is the FPR? and the hose that connects to it?

remove the engine cover. you'll see a nylon braided hose coming off of it.

Answer:
The DV line goes through the N249 valve too, so it is not a direct connection to the manifold. Use FPR lne. N249 valve will keep the DV opened (leave the vacuum on it) until positive boost is requested.
