Check the link for some pics on the tap location.
Depending on temp, fuel and engine load, I run about 15 lbs max.
Normally under WOT it's 13 lbs.

dont tap the line that goes to the bpv...it will not give any vacuum, and everytime gove 10psi. use the "T" that palmer shows in his pic and you will be good and get accurate numbers.

there is a solenoid on the bpv line that controls what sort of pressure and vacuum are in that line. the line that palmer illustrated comes directly off the intake manifold, giving you the true pressure and vacuum your engine sees. do it.
