    Do a search mate, there's a few guides with handy pitures too.

    The best place is probably off of the FRP Fuel Regulator Pipe which runs off the underneath of the manifold.

    DV pipe would be my personal choice mate, for several reasons.

    Only if you have done an N249 delete.... FPR pipe is untouched by the ECU and VAG paraphernalia

    Mine's also t-pieced into my fuel regulator then run down through a gromet in the bulkhead on the passenger side.
