330Ci AA stage 2.. Boost line?
Hey guys.. I am in the middle of troubleshooting a boost leak in my 01 330Ci with AA stage 2 blower.. I bought a PLX boost gauge/module and tested it out last weekend. It worked.. Now my question is where is the most accurate place to tap into the vac line for a good vac/boost reading? Any pics of the location I should use?

Sorry I cant even tell where that is.. lol.. can you help me out? Also what size is the tubing (I need to get a T that is that size with one line a 1/8th or whatever i need for my sensor module.. Also does this pic show a hose removed or would I tap into that hose that is connected?

Thanks again!

Port is made for a 8mm hose i think.
Its on the back of the intake manifold(the ports are facing the firewall)

If you look at your intake you'll spot the B and you can go from there.

OK thanks.. So its a direct reading of manifold pressure? and there are spare nipples waiting for a hose on the stock intake?

You can T in to the vacuum line that's routed to the bypass valve.
