Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There won't be any hoses that you can T into if that's what you were hoping for. If you want to install a boost gauge you will need to go directly to the intake manifold. What you would need to do is remove the intercooler hose at the intake and remove the EGR flow control valve (which looks like an electronic throttle control throttle body), insert a vacuum cleaner wand to catch shavings, and drill a hole in the intake whatever size you need for your gauge fitting. The gauge should come with a threaded fitting of some sort and the intake will need to be drilled and tapped to accommodate it.
