alrighty so heres my question:

for my ho manifold i got 1 nipple on the far right, 1 in the middle then my screw in iat sensor.

on the back i got a 5/8 nipple

so my vac so far is this:

far left nipple has my fpr regulator connected to it and teed into for my boost gauge.

middle nipple has a vac line from my air/oil seperator from the block that i tapped like said ran the t so i can run the other line (perpindicularily) to my turbo air intake and the other part of the line goes to that middle nipple

the 5/8 nipple on the back has my brake booster connected to it

throttle body is setup:

Both left seem to be after the throttle body plate
top left nipple will be my bov and nothing teed into it
bottom left nipple has my map sensor

top right is my wastegate
bottom right was brake booster but is now plugged off

any help/insight would be great!!!

I need pics lol. Also, I always thought the IAT sensor needed to be put before the throttle body?

Remember though, Quads cam with IAT screw-in sensor in the manifold. Only draw back to it being in the manifold is the amount of heat that sensor sees because it's aluminum bolted to the head, but with a phenolic spacer theres no heatsoak draw back (or at least not as much) which acts the same as if you relocated the sensor to the intake instead of the manifold.

You are going to want the map sensor on the manifold, not TB. It will not read correct and idle like crap.

Why won't it run right, you said there was vacuum in the intake pipe, so why can't there be vacuum in the throttle body?????

Yes there in vacuum, but not the same amount.

So you're saying intake pipe vacuum is less than intake manifold vacuum, correct?

So say you had a canister with two hoses connected to it. One hose had slight vacuum applied to it and the other a lot more. Which way would the air travel? To the hose with more vacuum or the hose with less vacuum?

havent had any issues with idling at all, drives perfect and idles perfect

im still curious to how people are running their vacuum lines

i was at the track last week and found out about a company out of Schamburg, IL that has a few things for boosted cars, including these.





they look to be a bit smaller than the ones posted up earlier in this thread and they come in black or red.
they cost a bit more but to some that may not be an issue and they are readily available.


here is their site.

just wanted to post up to give us some options.
