Best 2rz boost pressure source?

Just finished installing my LCE turbo kit on my 2000 2rz Tacoma. I’m trying to install my AEM boost gauge tonight and was wondering the best place to put the vacuum line for the gauge?

If it is just for your gauge, I would put it on the plenum so you know true pressure getting to the intake

Yep, just like ZIP said, intake manifold is the best source. There should be a port on both the front and rear of the plenum that you can use as a source. My 2000 3rz had a plug on both the front and back that I replaced with a threaded nipple.

Yeah, I want to know what threading the rear nipple is because it curves up on the 5vz plenum. Kind of awkward. I use the front nipple for my BOV boost reference.

Yeah for sure man. Have you made any progress on figuring out your fueling issue?

she has actually just been sitting in the garage, not touched. Unfortunately she still has throttle issues. And goes lean when it should be rich and rich when it should be normal.
