bov vacuum line runs to the plenum (anywhere after the throttle body)

boost controller & external gate into a t-peice there should be a vacuum peice coming out of the compressor housing, run the t-peice to that also.

hose to wastegate can either run to the turbo outlet or the plenum, i prefer the plenum, then it goes to the bleed valve, the other side of the bleed valve goes to the bottom port of the external wastegate.. this does vary with what type of boost controller you are using, if you have a boost `T` then this is correct, if you have a plain single conection bleed valve, then you need to put a t piece in the hose from the plenum to wastegate, and run it to the port on the bleed valve, with a single connection beeld screw you will most likely need a restrictor fitted to the feed hose before the `T` piece... most boost `T` type bleed valves have a restrictor built into them

the BOV needs a hose from the plenum... run seperate hoses to the plenum for boost control and bov
