Blowoff question

Should one of my vacuum lines from the boost controller (manual) be going to one of the ports on the godzilla blowoff valve? I had to take everything off and now I can't get the blowoff to sound and my boost is stuck at 5#. The way I currently have it hooked up is one port to the turbine housing teed off to the bottom port of the wastegate and the other mbc port going to the top part of the wastegate. I have a vacuum going from the top port of the godzilla blow off to the intake manifold. My bov is after the intercooler before the maf. I was running 16# before bringing down the tranny and unhooking things. Any help is appreciated. By the way the boost controller is the Trust Greddy Manual Boost Controller and I can't tell which side of the controller is the turbo source side and which is the wastegate side.

Any vacuum line will work, it doesnt have to be from the MBC.

If there are 2 ports on the BOV try switching the port that you have the vacumm line going to (example... from the top to the bottom)
