    Right at the very back of the intake manifold.

    Standing at the front of the car, reach to the ack of the manifold and to the right a bit, there is a pipe going from the back of the manifold to the vaccumm of the brakes, its between that pipe and the manifold.

    Really to replace it you will find its best to remove the intake manifold, only 10bolts, plus unplugging the injectors and fuel rail. Perhaps you can change it without removing the inake manifold but if you can it will be extremly differcult in my opinion, would e quicker to take the maifold off.

    I broke my sender when changing my valley cover screws, the rathchet swang round and knocked the sender. Its easy to brake the sender when removing the intake manifold, the same for putting it back. You may want to search for posts on removing the intake manifold. I can get it off and back on again in 30mins.

    Yeah, behind the intake on the drivers side. GM makes a socket/tool for it to make it easier to replace with the intake on.
