Best place to connect fuel pressure gauge on 89 I4 2.5L?

Where is the best place to connect the fuel pressure gauge on the TB for a 89 I4 2.5L? There seems to be a port on the side of the TB but no standard connectors fit that port.

If you download the FSM and you are not a member of dropbox, please PM Ninjakid and join under him. It gives him more space to store and it is a real generous thing to get the manual for free!

Also lots of good info in Shaef's threads about his TBI:

Get a multimeter. Some of the pre 91 tbi sensors require an adjustment to setup when replaced. Since you are dealing with PO that probably didn't know, chances are you need to do some adjustments with the basic tune up. Wide open throttle switch(WOT), the throttle position sensor(TPS), Idle Speed Adjustment Motor(ISA), and the fuel pressure on the throttle body.
