Boost pressure source

Recommended Posts

Good Evening Gents,

 

My front housing and intercooler piping does not have anywhere I am able to get a boost pressure source for my EBC.

 

Is the lower nipple on the throttle body (To the canister) a boost source? (Not using canister either way)

 

If not what is the easiest way to get a boost pressure source? 1 Way valve?

go to a welder, weld a nipple on...

 

most FMIC kits have a pressure line just before the throttle body for these kinds of things.. do not use a post throttle body source..

It can be hard to find nipples made of the same material as your intercooler piping, most auto shops only sell brass types, if you need them asap and don't have the time to buy online and wait for delivery you can go to a metal specialist like BJ housing and buy 1/4 inch or 1/2 inch tubing and cut it down and get it welded on to make a nipple, works well but you might want to get some little hoses claps as well because they can pop off

Do you say that because you're not suppose to apply vacuum to the waste hate acuator or is there another reason? I had it hooked up like that for a while through a ballbearing type mbc before I got my intercooler pipes made without any problems

also the longer the vac line is to the actuator the worst it is for boost control

You'll get massive boost spikes on fast/heavy throttle transitions.

 

Not saying it doesn't work, but it works poorly.
