Default Mopar Boost Gauge install question

I just received the Mopar Electric Boost Gauge. I put a "T" in the brake booster line on the back of the intake above the turbo. That works fine.
The problem that I have is that I can't find a location to tap the power from. This gauge needs a switched power source that maintains power during engine cranking. Does anyone know where I could tap into to power the gauge?

I used a add-a-fuse to the 10amp fuse at #11. That is a constant on. No problems with overdraw.
I have the Autometer Pro-Comp which I believe is a similar Gauge. It is electric boost/vac and has it's own MAP sensor, requiring a constant on for auto-calibrating. It also has a warning and peak recall feature.
