    How could I run my external wastegate spring by not connecting the vacuum line to the turbo because my turbo dont have the nipple on it for the vacuum.

    You can use the intake manifold vacum line but you need a check link on that line cause you can't put vacuum on the actuator , only pressure ! ,

    pd: I am not really sure if that's the line you refer to !

    most turbos atleast have a screw on the compressor housing, take out the screw and buy a nipple at the hardware store that has the same threads

    T off of the fuel pressure regulator vacuum line or the brake booster. Ive ran vac/boost to a WG without issues. Ive also heard that it shouldnt see vac though like someone mentioned.
