Boost gauge WAS: Violent Cutoff (I mean really violent) Update

Where would be the best place to "T" into for a mechanical boost gauge on the 
200 20V?  I'd like to blend easy of surgery with accurate vacuum WRT the 
turbo operation.
I was thinking right in front of the ECU, any issue with this location?

-Scott by BOSTON currently no boost, so I have other issues.
