BOV Install Question

Hi, I am still in progress in finishing my turbo. I have a Garrett T25 Turbocharger installed and now im just making some finishing touches. I need help on installing my BOV. I have a TurboXS BOV and i need to know how do I set it up. What i know is that i have to weld the flange onto the intake pipe that the turbo sends out the air from. Then i know i have to connect a Vaccum tube from the BOV into something. Thats the something i need to know. Can someone make a toutorial showing me how or explaining where i have to connect that tube on a Focus.
Thanks for your responses

I would use the Vac line going to the EGR valve and rerought it to the BOV , Who ever tunes your car can turn off the EGR in the switch

Whats the EGR valve? And i've been searching and i have seen different answers. My turbo has a vac line and i have read that I have to connect a tube from the turbo vac to the Wastegate in order for the wastegate to work. Then where do I connect the boost gauge and the BOV? Pics would be great to explain! Also, might be a dumb question but is it possible to make a BOV work without a wastegate.
Thanks alot

Im not trying to give you a hard time but if you dont know enough about boost to answer some of these simple questions that maybe you need to take your car to some one that knows in your area , The Focus wont put up with many things wrong and you will be looking for a new engine
