      Well I have a conviently placed fitting coming off the back of the intake manifold. So I'm good there. What about the vacuum line to the blow off valve? Can I use the same one I used from the mani to the wastegate?

      You have to hook up the line from WG to a boost source not vacuum. ie compressor or charge piping. Your BOV is going to be hooked up to your intake mani for vacuum

      You could hook it to vac source but it causes issues. Overspeeding issues at part throttle boosting. Wot it will work properly.

      Just tap the comp housing, it takes litterally 5 mins.

      you dont want to use a signal line that is post throttle body.
