For the 2.3L see post 85 here.

My Ford Racing boost gauge (Autometer) also read -21 inHG at idle when the turbo was installed. I only had the blow off valve and boost gauge installed on the line.

Its blow through. So tomorrow is the big day! Lots of pics coming. Just waiting on the base tune from Tom and once it's all put together towing it up to get the downpipe made. I got autolite 103's, new gasket for the oil pan, new oil filter and 5 qts of synthetic oil. A bunch of extra clamps and hoses. Hopefully everything goes well. Hoping a lot of turbo guys will be online tomorrow to help me out if I run into any problems I can't figure out. Thanks for all the support. Also gonna need someone to pm me on how to load movies or sound clips on here. Thanks

Ok so the spark plugs and injectors are installed, coldside ran, oil pan tapped, hotside in the works. Almost there. Camera not working and phone damn near dead. I'll take care of the pics later on

Ok well a very long first day. I ended up running into a lot of setbacks. But what I did manage to get done was the water lines ran, the oil return, 80% of the hotside ran, all of the coldside hooked up. I also did the PCV delete and ran a hose to vent, hooked up everything to the vacuum block. I used the evap port on the manifold as my source for the block like sporadic did. Only thing I need to know for that is what to do with the other end of the evap by the top left of the engine bay. Do I need to run a hose with a breather or what? I was trying to look back through sporadic's 2nd build thread about it but can't seem to remember what to do.
I got 50% of the intake for the turbo done. need some pipe made for the rest. The downpipe is being made in the morning. I'm really sorry about the lack of pics but my phone was dead all day and camera was not cooperating at all. You guys have already seen what it all looks like off the car so I;ll get some pics of everything put on tomorrow.
Got to talk with Tom and he was extremely helpful as always. (thanks again Tom) Getting the base tune all set in the morning. Also didn't get the oil feed done. I know right! Brought the wrong oil filter adapter. I have three but somehow left the other two and grabbed the one that doesn't match the threads. No big deal take two seconds to do that. And no I didn't fill the car up with oil yet just because of that fact. So just a little tweaking and I'll be good to go tomorrow. Later guys.

Well the car is done finally. Just need to get it tuned right to drive but did the first datalog about an hour ago. Had all kinds of problems today but nothing major that I solve it. Sandwich plate adapter had completely wrong threads. Had to steal sporadic's setup for the oil feed. Took forever to get the downpipe made and the rest of the piping sorted out. Really tight fit in there. But it runs so hopefully get it to where I can drive soon.

You can just vent that unhooked evap line.
