    Best place to get a vacuum feed ( pic inside)

    Hi all, currently installing my boost controller, ive removed the carbon canister before refitting the engine so not overly sure what pipes from the canister went where!

    Which one out of the 4 below is best for a vacuum source for my SBC?



    If it helps, my SBC is a blitz Uras SBC I-D

    Rob

    P.S I've got the actuator in the "out" port and a pipe from the intercooler pipe that attaches to the turbo into the "in" will this be ok?

    Use either of the blocked ones.

    4? I can only see 2 there. Use one of those blue ones in the picture, under the throttle body.

    Is this for the boost reference or to feed the solenoid ?

    I ran my Profec B from there, to the solenoid. Safer than teeing into the FPR feed IMO. My car never blew up, boost was consistent across the controller and the gauge.

    I until very recently had my AVCR solenoid plumbed on of the large (post throttle) feeds, I've now put a small nipple into the silicon hose directly after the turbo and the difference is night and day

    I've got the boost sensor sill plumbed into one them though

    The shorter you can make your vac lines the better the control will be.

    Thanks for the help/advice guys, manage to sort it, the black blocked pipe from factory was the correct one, I didn't know it read minus until it hit boost

    Just got in from setting it all up and had a drive out, feels a lot more lively now!

    Now to get a H-Dev chip

    There's 3 blocked blue pipes and one blanked black pipe from factory!
