I got this URq that doesn't make boost. I bought it as my project and it ran decent but didn't make boost, now it doesn't run at all. Reason being I pulled out some vacum line off the wastegate and I can't figure out where it connects to? Could someone do me a big favor and take a look at there wastegate and track back where the line goes and let me know. I'm stuck and the Bentley doesn't even show it!!!

Hi Charlie. Which hose are you referring to?
Theres a big hose that goes from the intercooler to throttle that branches off to the wastegate, which causes the wastegate to open, allowing pressure to escape. There's also a little nipple on the wastegate cap that shouldn't have any hose on it. That is just supposed to vent to atmosphere. If you've been driving and boosting the car without the large hose attached, it will over boost and you could have some big problems.

Also, as I was thinking about it more, if it is the large hose that is unattached, it probly won't run cause of the huge vacuum leaks it creates!!
