I recently put a vacuum gauge in my 01 and had the same problem so I bought some hose clamps from a local hardware store and used the hose going to the break booster. They create a tight seal around the T fitting. I have driven about 1000 miles since the install and everything is still working fine and my gauge reading is right around 22 at idle, where it should be.

I used two of these clamps.
