Default mbc & boost gauge install

Where is the best place to tie in you mbc and boost gauge? Power brake vac line for gauge? Black tip line by the tb for mbc?

The mbc basically replaces the #2 solenoid(goes between waste gate and turbo). Do a search on the mbc hookup. The problem with a mbc is that is spools the turbo up too fast and can cause a flutter and surging. The best way, so far, is to use a dsabc. It only bypasses the PCM control of the waste gate at WOT. Search JasonL I believe he installed this set up! You can also search
I spliced my boost gauge into the brake booster hose. Use a metal tee, I used a NAPA p/n 715-1817.
