Nitrous Question

We are putting a plate system on one of my cars. The intake doesn't have a vacuum port that I can hook my PCV up to, so I took an aluminum spacer & drilled it out and put a Fitting on it for the pcv to get Vacuum off of. The carb is a Speed Demon 750 & I'm using the vacuum port on it for the Power Brakes. Now when I put this plate system on the car where should I get my vacuum source from. Would it be a bad idea to drill & tap the Nitrous plate & put a fitting in it like I already have on the carb spacer, or should I put the carb spacer on top of the nitrous plate?

Someone please give me some good ( feasable ) ideas.

EDIT: Drilling and Tapping one of my intake runners isn't an option that I want to use.

I put a T in the power brake vacuum line and got it there.

I had already thought about putting a T in the line, but due to the size of my cam I'm already almost power brake challenged even with a Vacuum canister hooked up to my power brakes. And I also don't want to do away with my PCV and switch to a valve cover breather setup either.

Summitracing.com sells a electic vacuum canister for power brakes for running a large cam. You could use it for your power brakes and free up the vacuum port on the carb for your PCV. This would also give you adequate vacuum for your brakes.
