To fit a boost gauge and boost controller you don't need to find the fuel reg.

The boost gauge will T into the vacum line from inlet manifold to the AEI unit, boost controller will plumb into the vacum pipe from the actuator to carb top.

Easy way to find it is find the vacum pipe that comes out the AEI unit mate, this goes to the inlet manifold so T into this pipe to fit the boost gauge
The AEI unit is the unit behind the bulkhead which the king lead connects to.

On a standard carb thats the max you can go, after that the carb will need tweeking to fuel correctly.
