no your the first to install my svt piping and i didnt have an svt to use. wasnt it you that sent me the measurements for the tb? once its clamped on the tb you may be able to push it toward the driver side and then tighten clamp on the piping

this is the difference between the hot side piping for the dei piece vs the hot side for the dp you were going to use

Alright guys, heading out for a vaca just some questions before I go, got a SCT and WG and finished installing A pillar pod and gauges. Where/how do I hook up my boost/vac hose I'm told after the throttle plate is best, but where exactly?? Also I bought a SCT X3 from a memember, umarried with 5 unlocks, that will work right? Or did I screw myself over trying to save $100?
Also shipping out stock cat the Tim for a dp fab, all that is left is getting a 67mm TB! Atleast I think/hope so.
here are pics of new parts and pod all installed.
Used SCT and new Evo WG

pod installed

Thanks Tim, and that's what I thought just started second guessing myself, thank you for confirming it! Tim cat and hot side pipe with coupler are all boxed up (in a new/smaller box) sending it slowest way possible. Let me know when you get it and when you're done with cat and have new pipe so I can send it back to me before I get back and have to drive again. Thanks again for all your help on my build!

The EVAP will be turned off in the tune so you can use the Vac line to go to the Boost gauge , BOV

I would use a dedicated line for the waste gate
