the small plastic line needs to be hooked up somewhere. if it is not hooked up your boost controller will have not no idea of what it is doing. there are two places to tap in for the t-fitting. one is at the blow off valve, the other is at the intake manifold just below the throttle cables. only tap a line once if you have a boost gauge that is tapped in at the blow off valve you will need to use the other location.

Yeah, that last picture is not right. There should not be a tee there. You should connect the purple sbc-id right to the turbo (using one of the gray tubes as a reducer). Then remove the tee and cap off the line that runs to the stock solenoid.

I hooked my blue input and output hoses from solenoid strainght to the wastegate and turbo. Once it is on those area, i used hose clamps to tighten it down. The clamps that came with the kit is alittle too big, so I got new smaller clamps.

Basically, I did not use any connectors for the hoses.

Once that is done, I plug up the OEM solenoid hose.

Where did you mount your solenoid and display?

What do you mean by "T?"
Are you refering the the brass hose connector or the "T" on the OEM hoses?


Cheers

hman: You might want to go check you clamps. I did the same thing you did and found that the sbc-id tubes are cheap and crumble with use of a hose clamp. This is why you use the grey stock lines with the plastic reducers that come in the box.

Cap off means close the end of it off so no air can get in or out.

Im not pointing to the large black tube. I'm pointing to the gray one behind it.

codean, thanks for the suggestion. I will re-examine the hose connections.


BTW: Where did you guys mount the solenoid?

This is how I "capped off" on my car:
-I used the little pastic connector that is on the OEM hose.
It is the gray looking.
-I plug that into the OEM solenoid hose. The hose in the pix above where it say "cap off."
-I go to the auto store and buy and small hose plastic cap. Zip tie it down and you are all set. If you need to drive your car to the auto store, use a small screw and plug it up until are able to buy the plastic cap. Make sure to take out the gray connector. Stick the screw straight into the hose to plug it up. Make sure you use a screw that is big enough to make it fit pretty tie. Do not use to big of a screw so that you rip the hose.

Hope that make sense.

Cheers

Mine's here, snug fit but the hose length is fairly short and it's covered.

Thanks guys... I am glad you like it.

I used to have more pics... however my computer crashed and I lost them.

Some of the blue is hoses, some is tubing. All in all I think it turned out pretty well.

As for the yellow... its VHT Brake Caliper paint I had leftover. I started spraying stuff and didn't stop!

Its hard to get started, but with a couple layers leaves a really high gloss finish. Most people think its either powder coat or professionally done... just paint by me though.

Since this pic I have added the STi radiator cap, removed the K&N sticker (running an STi filter), added some Vishnu stickers... 1 black one on the belt cover and one white/reflective in the scoop.

I have also rerouted my IC sprayer lines, made them look cleaner and such...

thanks again!
