If it was a Series II engine I could tell ya, but I don't know much about the Series I engines. There'* usually a couple lines that go in to the supercharger. On the M90, there is one by the snout that is a good one to use. Maybe it'* like that on the M62?

Someone with an M62 is gonna have to take pics or something. Cause you can't put it in just any vacuum line.

Anything that comes directly from the intake manifold should work. I'd have to see a pic of a Series I intake up close to tell for sure, but you should be able to tie it in with the same line used for the fuel pressure regulator.

I remember when installing mine, it was connected to a certain vacuum line, and it would only read vacuum, and not boost.

Don't ask me why, I'm just sayin what I saw. It could have just been a fluke.
