Um... you want a reading which reflects the pressure in the manifold. So any vac hose coming from the manifold will do the trick - just not PCV or other which may have check valves etc.

Something like brake booster will do the trick, or the vac line you have used for the BOV.

tap into the wastegate and you'll see what the turbo sees. tap into the manifold and you'll see what the engine sees. very rarely is there no psi drop from turbo to motor.

lol did he?
just think that was when i couldnt go past half throtal and the bov was leaking..
just need a new bov spring or new bov .... coz the spring pressure is way to soft and is being pushed open when on boost.
just a matter of cleaning up a few little things now

should just be a screw or something like that on the bottom or the top of the BOV

don't run it from the wastegate hose if you're running a boost controller, or you will be seeing a modified reading
