Default Noob Trying to finish my turbo set-up

Ok I was skeptical on whether or not to post about these things cause their so common in builds but after being told how people blow up there new motors cause they arn't done right I decided to throw them out there...Double checking and making sure i have it right with yall lol

Running a 91 1.6 with a built bottom end. MSPNP with a GT2860RS turbo. 550 Rc injectors and I want to be able to run 18lbs once the motor is broke in and everything is running good.


1. Installing my manual boost controller. One end of the hose goes to the wastegate and the other goes to the intake manifold on the stem that points to the firewall With a "T" fitting so I can hook the boost guage hose to the other side. If this is right what is the little "T" fittblock with the arrow on it for?? (Does it make it so I dont have to buy a "T" fitting for the Manifold?)

(I forgot about 2 things. My turbo outlet does NOT have a hose barb on it. The only thing I have on the turbo to hook to is the wastegate. Is this a problem? and what do I hook to the BOV? So four things that go where? lol BOV, Boost guage, Boost controller, and wastegate.

2. I got rid of that Evap canister thing and now there's one hard line sticking up. Do I just cap this?

3. For my oil pressure guage i did an 01 interior swap and to make my guage work properly I know I need a 100 resistor added to the guage can anyone post a link to the write I found it once a while back but cant seem to find it by searching now..?

Thank ya'll for your help. I have pictures attached of all the above stuff.
Sorry for asking so many questions but This forum is all I have as an info source I'm new to turboing "Obviously" lol

Blow off valve vacuum line goes on a port on the intake.

Boost gauge goes on another port of the intake.

Controller and WG go just before the throttle body.

that is quite literally the shittiest mbc you could have possibly gotten.
I've seen at least 10 of those absolutely not work at all or work so shitty people threw them in the trash. I'd suggest getting rid of it and either getting the nxs ebay brand one, building one yourself, or getting a hallman.

I only have two ports on the intake manifold and the front one is used for the Megasquirt?? Just use two T- fittings on both ports?

I'm pretty sure that one is decent too.
Just do a quick search.
Many of us are running either the nxs or made one ourselves. There's a whole write up and parts list and everything. You end up spending 15-20 bux total and it will WORK

Ain't that the truth. I could never get that one to go below 15 psi lol.
+1 on the Hallman.
