no! that's your brake booster's vacum hose, DO NOT CUT IT.
you should tap it at any hose that go's to the manifold. on the engine.
My RUF boost gauge is tap'd at the hose to the wastegate

Yes. I purchased my boost gauge from North Hollywood along with a "T" connector and that is where it goes. The boost reading is accurate, but there are other locations that are as good or better. I would defer to other people on this blog that are wiser than I about 930s.

Yep, that's it. Saves running a pipe all the way back to the engine bay when that one is right there!

That's it, although you can tap into it anywhere (I did mine under the dash).

I was always told the closer to the turbo the more accurate it is I ran a hard line thru the tunnel to the wastegate vacuum line that way at least I see the boost the wastegate is seeing.
