Rover 25 mine is, so aint sure if it's the same as the pictures taken...
Also, when comig to fit a gauge, is it easier to fit with it in the air?
Look around the back of the engine for the turbo actuator, the green pipe will be coming out of the fire wall near that area.

The photo's are from my own Rover 25.

In answer to Skelo's earlier quesiton, Rover quote the boost as 1.2 bar (17.4psi) for the newer L series in the 25/45/ZR/ZS diesels, and from memory it's 1 bar (14.7psi) for the older L series found in the 200/400/600

Thats the MAP sensor. The picture is at a funny angle, on my R45 it is in the middle of the engine bay, at the top, at the back.

the boost gauge gives only 0.5 bar (7 PSI) at most, is this normal??? Ive read the diesel can handle 1.4 bar (20 Psi) easely

Have you adjusted the actuator?

If you have, then you probably have a split intercooler hose.

yep, you're losing the boost somewhere!! Do you get lots of smoke when you put your foot down?

Check the actuator linkage is connected up OK, and take the hoses off and look for splits. Get an assistant to hit the accelerator while you snoop in the engine bay and look/listen/feel for an air leak.

I didnt adjust the actuator, and there are no split hoses also.
and no black smoke when hitting the pedal. and the car drives fantastic!
maybe the gauge isnt working correct?? this is the one ive bought from SLM:

You should be able to move the gauge by blowing/sucking the pipe, this will tell you if the gauge works. If you leave the pipe connected to the turbo you can take the gauge off and see if there is air coming out of the pipe when you rev it.

I bought a Powertek kit from ebay, part of which was a t-piece. I didn't take the time to examine it, but the 'leg' of the t had a brass/bronze insert that reduced the diameter down to about 1mm - i think this was why there was no reading on the gauge.

Bought another t-piece and it all works fine

For anyone thats interested, a 05 ZR TD seems to produce 16psi as standard
