Question Vacuum for WG, BOV, and this brass thingy to...... routing?

It's a Quicktime Turbo kit for a Fox. Okay I have the BOV, Turbo, and WG installed, now I need to route vacuum lines from each to where? Under the upper intake is where I have read in other posts/threads, just want to make sure. I also have a boost gauge that I will install at a later time. Where does this attach to?

I was looking up at the car and saw a brass 90 degree fitting on the bottom of the turbo. What is this for and what do I need to do with it?

The WG has two fittings on it. Why? Do I use both fittings for vacuum or just one and which one? What does the other fitting do, just sit there for super cool looks?

Thanks,
Ben. Semper Fi

the brass fitting goes directly to the side port on the wg, the top port is vented to atmosphere unless using a boost controller. for the blow off valve you want a vaccum source after the throttle blade.so when it goes off boost into vacuum it pulls the bypass open

there are 2 so you can hook use a ele boost controller up.
not sure on yours but my turbonetics uses the bottom port and its attached to intake.. The ebc uses both top and bottom.

everything goes to intake. some use the brass fitting for the wastegate but I use the intke and caped it off. You get a better reading there.

pic 3 is the source of vac for the vac tree.

pic 4 on my car I have 1 going to the mess of vac lines on the frnder for egr/smog crap and the other is my boost gauge/fuel press reg... Im not sure what was there stock lol I think I just Ted the boost gauge into the FPR but the lines have been re done so many times lol

its a tial gate, they also have instructions because they make one of the best...check their site, it has a good diagram. bottom port!!!! If you plug the top port, it will not work, unless you are using some sort of controller. I'd recommend against using a controller until getting familiar with how the car runs and how things work, then move up from there...

That fitting on the turbo could be for the WG. Don't hook it up past the throttle body. It is not supposed to see any vacuum.

Hook this one to the nipple on the compressor.
