2005 Mustang GT... Help With Boost And Fuel Pressure Gauge Hookups

I have a KB Big Bore I had it installed by a professional. Didn't what to take it on by myself. I looked through the forums and didn't find a picture or anyone stating where to hook up the boost pressure line or the fuel pressure line. I ordered the Autometer Phantom II. Can anyone can give me some advice on this?

The boost line gets t-ed in to the vacuum line on drivers side.
The fuel pressure sender has to be installed on the KB adapter on the fuel rail. There is a Schrader valve on there now. You have to remove the adapter, remove the schrader valve from it.
Then you have to grind the outside of the aluminum adapter block for clearance of the Autometer sending unit.
The sending unit will screw in but it does not have suffiecent clearance to be threaded down. Removing a little metal off the shoulder of the adapter block will allow you to screw it down.
The only other place to install a FP sensor is in the rubber cross over line from the drivers rail to the passenger's rail.
I prefer the solid aluminum KB adapter location as this is where KB recommends placement.

Thanks. I saw the schrader valve and I will look for the vac line to tie in the boost gauge. Wanted to make sure before I did anything. This forum has been a big help to me and I'm sure that there are alot of others who think the same way. Thanks for the info.
