Default MBC with no pressure source on turbo

Running a Chinacharger T25. It doesn't have pressure source on the outlet like many other turbo's. So where should I get my pressure source from using the MBC?

Put an outlet anywhere on the charge pipes or intercooler tanks. Do not use a port post (after) the throttle body. If you are concerned with boost droop with RPM, use the cold side charge pipe, just before the throttle.

I'm pretty sure there are bungs that can be mounted into silicone elbows, if you cannot get one welded onto charge pipe.

do it after the IC but before the TB.

^ This is the best location to take the boost reference from when running a manual boost controller. Taking the reference either from the compressor itself or from a point in the pipes before the intercooler will result in a slight boost drop-off that correlates with RPM.
