Hopefully you haven't been trying to boost the car around after you picked it up from the shop. I would have a serious bone to pick with the shop after I saw my bcs lines were not hooked up.

What have you been boosting to? Have you been flogging the car? Are there any vacuum lines connected from the turbo to the wastegate?

id be worried too if i were you. no telling if the mechanics test drove the car and got into boost... bring it to another shop to have it tested for other problems as a result of this. and good luck!

I know this is old as ****, but thanks very much for that pic. Had a hell of a time finding where the bcs plugs. Just wanted to say thanks!
