Guys.. i've got an MBC I want to hook up.. yet I don't see where the lines off the mbc go? I know one obviously hooks up to the WG, but the turbo doesn't have a nipple anywhere on it for the Boost line.

Drill and tap the hot pipe, put a fitting and attach the line.

If you have the outlet adapter that comes with it, you can drill and tap that. Its what I did.

If there isnt a nipple on the turbo housing then you need to put it in the hot charge pipe somewhere before the intercooler.

Your compressor outlet adapter is the best place to drill and tap for a boost source. Here's what the ATP adapters come with:

hmm I believe my ATP turbo thing does have that! I'll need to find something to screw it in though.

I'm in a good mood right now, or I'd think of something clever to say... but I assume you feel pretty silly right now. If your ATP adapter already has a hole in it like that, how did you ever expect to make boost?

Just about any brass barb that will screw into the hole and you can get your vaccum line on will be fine. Any autoparts store will have something that will work.
