Boost gauge sensor placement

Which location is best for the boost sensor on a 7.3, thru the intake air heater port or to drill and tap just above it?

I would use the heater port that is wear mine is at it gives a clean look. It also gives you a true reading of how much boost the engine is getting.

An even easier route is to put a tee in the MAP sensor hose and run it to your gauge/sensor. It's already connected at the base of the turbo outlet spider below the IAH port.
