    i know its normally aspirated that's why you get a vacuum as its sucking not getting blown by a turbo

    Mine registers a vacuum until the turbo kicks in then it switches to boost

    im using the sensor in the manifold to read both on torque pro

    Is to permanent tee in is it Paul? If so you need to go into manifold or at least air intake pipes.

    If its for diagnostic purposes try teeing in on underside of throttle body.

    I've not seen that engine in person so don't know if its possible but its an idea.

    if its permanent fitted gauge get ya drill an tap& die set out lol

    you can tee into anything after the throttle body to get your vac reading...not familiar with 2.2 but brake servo line/hoses off inlet manifold or flexi between tb and manifold... i wouldn't drill/tap stuff unless removed as swarf could be an issue(as getting sucked into valves/pistons)... if wanted a tempish thing would chop into brake servo pipe or depending on your diy capabilities drill through an m4-m6x20mm bolt 2.5-3mm and pop it through tb to manifold pipe with some rubber washers..if not temp would remove manifold and drill/tap.
