If you are using the parts that came in the IE VMP install kit, those are not sufficient to damp out the pulses seen in the MAP when connected to the #3 intake port.

You will need OMEGA Engineering Snubber or similar damping between the #3 intake port and the MAP sender ( Or, drill/tap another hole in the intake manifold and use that for the MAP source.
I installed the Van's-supplied restrictor for MAP on #3 cylinder per the plans, connected to a Dynon-provided MAP XDCR, and it's been rock-solid for 700+ hours on a stock IO-360-M1B. (ETA BTW, that part you reference is steel, which tends to gall when used in aluminum parts).
