    I have my bov mounted on my intercooler above the inlet pipe. are you going with a manual boost guage or electric?

    The BOV will be for a STS kit im sure they dont include BOV's anymore

    and the boost gauge im not sure yet.

    Im thinking the electric will be easier to connect but whichever works best for my car and doesnt require a bunch of work, i want to spend time time on other projects rather then the boost gauge

    run your boost gauge line to the intake for your vaccum source, will be more accurate too.

    for the bov some people mount them in many places, i've seen them right before the t/b,i've ran mine before there and at the intercooler outlet

    My BOV is between the intercooler and the MAP sensor. And my boost gauge is hooket up to the line that goes to the BOV. However my guage does not read vacum!
