intake tube or vacuum line from intake....if you're going to run a lot of boost 20+ pounds, you'll need a positive in line (off turbo or off intake)...I made 19 pounds off a line off the intake...

manifold is ok but just keep it mind that in theory the turbo could run away on you if you ever have a bad coupling, intercooler, etc

i actually plan on installing extra pressure sensor at the turbo compressor which i will log via my anderson pms interacq and will be a good way to see the pressure drop across the intercooler or if there's ever a issue

Rusty, the turbo is the best option, and the only one in my opinion. When do I get to see this beast?

i think closest possible to the TB is best.

Otherwise, lets say mounted at the turbo and you're using springs to tune for boost or a boost controller, the engine will see less actual boost due to the pressure drop after the intercooler and piping.

Closer to the intake manifold you are the more accurate your wastegate will regulate. Or atleast thats how i always interpreted it, and i read read and read some more when i was making my turbo kit and never had a problem with it set up like this

Just my .02, take it for what its worth :D

i know youre not talking to me, but what he is saying that is that if there is a very bad leak in your cold side, that the wastegate would just stay closed because there wouldnt be pressure (from leaks) to tell it to open. The turbo would in theory keep spinning higher and higher until.....

i thought this won't show vacuum and hence you need it after the tb

exactly. there are companies who sell speed sensors that monitor your turbo shaft speed. odds of it happening... who knows???

pkstang.. ive never heard of anyone having to run VACUUM to the wastegate... maybe i am missing something, or they may have evolved since last time i've put one together (2008)

I would think if there's a leak that bad then the motor wouldnt make enough power to spin the turbo that fast. Not sayin its not possible though.
