    Just intalled turbo kit in my car. Im running Tial wastgate and useing a manual boost controller. Should I run the vacuum source for the wastegate from the compressor or from the manifold and do I leave the top port on the waste gate open?

    here we go :)


    just use like a 2" piece of vac line and put a nail or something in it and hosecmap it shut so it doesn't leak on the turbo. i've never liked those things... and most big turbos don't even come with them anyway. the vac at the IM is a better reading anyway.
