    carbon canister.

    Provide pics of your set up.

    You should have a fule pipe loop in place of the canister if its been removed and a short pipe coming from the nipple on the plenum that is blocked off with a screw or reused for the boost gauge or similar.

    Search for carbon canister for more details.

    It would of gone to carbon canister like your mates! But can be used for boost controller but not boost gauge as it only sees positive pressure!

    If you aren't using a boost controller block it off.

    You should have 1 vac line at the back of the plenum which goes to the FPR (it will be about 5cm long)

    And block the 1 under the Throttle body (or use this as a feed to your Actuator or boost controller)

    Vac line from side of plenum for boost gauge.

    Pull any other vac lines out and the Hot start solenoid, if not already done. As it isnt needed.


    Beat you too it this time!

    Are you talking inlet mani or exhaust mani?

    The banjo on the block will be feed to the turbo and then another pipe the one thats a hardline is the return from the turbo which as you say goes to the back of the plenum i think then goes to the hardline under the inlet mani!

    Where is the kink?

    Turbo obviously isn't watercooled then so pipework has been looped just leave it unless its a problem
