Need help finding what line goes to the metal nipple coming off the front of the turbo on my ej20g I looked everywhere but cannot find what hose to connect to it. It is the one that pushes air out of it. anyone have an idea?

Sounds like its the hose that goes to your boost controller. If you were to hook it up directly to your wastegate actuator it would boost whatever spring pressure is.

I take it you're not driving the car yet?

Yes that hose needs to go to either:
Wastegate actuator on turbo
Boost controller- manual or electronic
External wastegate

The hose may be missing. Find a flexible rubber hose that fits the nipple and hook it up to one of the 3 I mentioned above. Most likely the stock electronic boost control solenoid. Search it to see what it looks like and where it is.

It tastes like burning

It goes to the boost control solenoid located on the right side strut tower. It is the hose marked "to compressor housing outlet" in the picture.

Ok I have that hose hooked up here

What do I hook up to this after I take it off and put it on the turbo? The charcoal canister?

That picture is useless without an arrow or something.

Paste the pic to paint and circle the hose connection. You should probably take a better pic too, the angle of the camera makes me think you are not even close to the boost solenoid.

It looks like you have that hose hooked up to your coolant reservoir. If so, do not turn the car on!

It's hooked up to the metal hose under it? There are two of them one small and one that is bigger?

Only air should flow through that line. Did you find the boost solenoid yet?

Ya I got that all squared away but I was confused on the charcoal canister but that hooks up to the two metal lines under the coolant resivoir right? there lines that the fuel vapors go through into the canister?

Your posts are un-intelligible. You're making it seem like you hooked up the compressor nipple of the turbo to the charcoal cannister.

The charcoal canister is pretty much unrelated to the boost control system.
It's part of the evap system and should be on the vaccum/evap line of the fuel lines.

What are you trying to say?
