    Remove the engine cover.
    Look on the air intake plenum just in the front of the engine, behind radiator. There is a MAP sensor. Pay attention as this one is pressure and temperature sensor (has 4 pins). That is where the pressure measure that is delivered to the engine. You can find another MAP (pressure only) on the inter cooler.

    Thanks. I knew about the one on the engine - I've seen threads about updating it from an earlier model to a newer one - and knew there was another one somewhere, obviously just the pressure (without the "finger" in the middle of the sensor) but wasn't sure where it was.

    If I recall correctly, the one on IC is for reference only. I am not sure if you can ever read the pressure through OBD devices
