I don't have any pics w/ me...but I generally hooked mine up to the UIM right before it went into the LIM..there are a few vac sources on the passenger side of the UIM you should be able to use.

I spliced mine off from my BOV I think....then I poked a hole through my firewall and ran it all the way up throug my A-pillar and put the pod there.

You can also use existing holes in the firewall on the driver's side as long as you don't crimp the hardline(assuming your using an auto-meter like setup)



Some of the more expensive(IMO nicer) gauge setups use actual vac line for the gauge.



The BOV is accurate enough, but most of the time I like to run mine directly off the manifold since i use it directly for tuning in the standalone.

im just trying not to compromise anything. I have a aftermarket blow off valve and my boost sensor is hooked up as well as the blow off valve to what appears to b the appropriate nipples, but I cant seem to find one that isnt being used. Would some kind of T-fitting work?

Ya T fitting will be fine, just make sure it wont pop off under WOT.

I used the vac nipple on the TB that used to work the secondary double throttle pull-off.

TB front side bottom nipple.

Any tap downstream from the throttle plates will work.
