Unhappy Tapped out

So a while back, I put on a Forge boost tap. This worked well for giving me a readout, however over time I have realized the thing leaks like a sieve. There is oil allllllll over the front of the engine under that thing. So, I ordered a ECS boost tap. Looked promising! But upon inspection, the thing is tiny! I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to mount the thing between the manifold and PCV. It is too small of a diameter. Can someone tell me that I am an idiot and missing something simple?

And what's shameful is I googled everything I could think of since I got the thing last night. Had originally gotten some thick pipe from Autozone before the part came in, and was ready and waiting for the UPS guy. Then I started to piece it together and realized "crap, the damn tap is so small it fits inside the tube I bought!". So I started reasearching and even emailed ECS, who basically just said "sorry, but we don't do advice". So seriously, thank you kind sir/madame.

What I used to do instead of that was get a vaccum connector for the manifold to the brake booster tee with a smaller branch already on it (3way rubber connector) from older mk4 1.8t engine.
