Default IHI RHF5 Boost Pressure Source Fitting?

Hey guys, I'm currently Putting together an MSM turbo for my NB8B VVT mx5 and im wondering if theres a fitting for the boost pressure source on the compressor housing or if anyone knows what the thread size is?

Thanks!

I'd have to double check, but I think it's to secure one of the coolant lines

I would have to say it is for a coolant line clamp. Sorry this is the best pic I had. You can't see that mounting point in the picture, but the only thing that runs close to it is the coolant line. I know I did not use it with my MSM turbo install so I am sure it does not pass any air. Before looking at the pictures I thought it was a mounting point for the heatshield, but those are only on the hotside parts.
