Default Installing manual boost controller

I just picked up this boost controller http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...138132645&rd=1 and I cant figure out how to install it. I looked thru the search, but I still dont understand and the pics that were once posted are no longer available.

Thanx

Noooooow I get it. 1 more question, there are no ports on my compressor outlet to hook up the line, should I just tap in to the intercooler pipe?

I've not seen a boot controller like that. I've always built inline gills valves for manual control. What's that top line going to, the one going to a gray tear drop?

It's a vent. It just goes to the outside. This is a variant on the bleeder-style MBC.
