I think I found it. Although I think a vent boost gauge like this kind of looks out of place. I'd probably find another place to mount it. Now to just figure out where to tap into.

That vent kit says for the 335i but this gauge is for the 335d m57 but im guessing the vent would be the same.

Ok being that i have a challenge here for me I called ECS a few minutes ago and spoke to DAVE. I advised him i had 2011 335d and that I did not know where to connect it he told me that since DIESELS dont have vaccum I would have to connect it SOMEWHERE in the intake:

(Duh!! Hello here, Im buying a product from u and you dont know where Im supposed to connect it, it says in your WEBSITE its made for a BMW 45mm Boost Gauge Kit BMW E90 335d M57 3.0L, WTF!! ECS)

Anyway DAVE was very nice and admitted to me that he did not know where to actually connect it but advised it was more intended to a 335i and NOT a DIESEL. ok amigos so where the F does this connection go? Anyone please!!

Im new to this. Would we have to tap into the charge pipe (#12) to get a boost reading? I'm about to buy another charge pipe and use it for testing. It seems this is the best place to tap into. Let me know what you guys think.

That would be a good option. That pipe is where I drilled/taped and installed a water injection nozzle.

I have not find any vaccum that have boost ... but i have installed a small 1/8 nipple fitting on the piping and it work perfectly. No more than $2 and only 30 minutes to do that. I have made the test with a old boost gauge. Just need to buy the ECS Tuning this morning and i will install it as soon as i receive it.

Really easy job.
