On the S2 motor, it'* easiest to tee into the line by the MAP sensor(*).

My boost gauge on the Zilla is also tied in with the MAP sensor. SLE is off the FPR.

Any of the actual manifold vacuum will do the job. In this case, it seems that the "best" place to add the gauge in would depend on which series motor and the location of the vacuum lines.
