Thanks for the explanation EuroVeeDub. I assume you are putting this into an A1 chassis from the shift linkage pics. (BTW, some of the pics are X's) Maybe my A2 won't hit?
Hmmm, I dont know...I think it might. You'll have to see. It's really not hard to fix the problem though.
As for your question about the hardline connecting the 2 compressor halves; that is the boost control line for the wastegate. It takes boost from the compressor side and plumbs it to the wastegate. The wastegate sees this boost and open to prevent it from going over a set level. This is the line you would splice into to install a manual boost controller. The thing is, you don't really need a boost controller because the wastegate is adjustable. You need to loosen the lock nut on the adjuster and then use a hex key to adjust the wastegate. I just don't know which way to adjust for LESS boost. I don't want to screw it up and get 10 PSI when I really wanted 2... All help would be apprecaited!
WOW! Im such a moron... I didnt even think about that hex screw thing on top of the wastegate. I just assumed it was not adjustable
As soon as I get it all installed and find a boost and air/fuel guage I'll let you know which way to turn it
So, the BOV goes between the IC and the TB right. Well, where does the vaccum line that comes out of the top of it go? Can it go anywhere in the cold-side piping? Or does it need to go somewhere specific to work correctly?
