Default 03 VVT MAP Sensor Location

I have searched, read FM's turbo install manual, and I'm just not sure where to tap off to get a signal to the MAP sensor. FM says not to use the capped off nipple between two runners, but then the picture looks like they are either using that nipple or a line that mine doesn't have. I looked at some pics of a build thread and it looks like there is a 4 way tee coming off of the nipple in question. Can anyone clarify or better yet post a picture? And even a picture of where to mount it and how to run the wire to/through the firewall.

I really appreciate the help.

Ok I didnt see the actual nipple on the underside between the two runners, so the capped off nipple it is I suppose.... I would still love a picture or two for mounting ideas, wire routing, etc.

Why do you care about tapping into the EGR stuff?

You want to run speed density off a sensor that only reads pressure in the EGR pipes?

This seems like a backwards way of saying that I should be tapping off of somewhere else on the manifold or not using a map sensor at all.
