This be the line Luke is talking about:



If you follow it back you should actually find a little solenoid with two lines going to it, you can take out the solenoid and replace it with the boost controller.

yeh luke that's mine allright. Photo's from when I first got the car and asked exactly the same question sinner did.

Your's has the plugs pointing sideways right? I'm not sure if it's a series 2 blacktop thing or if it's a dizzy cap off a de pulsar or the like. My leads only just fit on because of it tho.

When you get the stock BOV on it, leave it on there, it will go much better for it, aftermarket Atmo bovs will stuff up your AFR's when you change gears.

any r34 bov is a straight bolt in so take your pick at any kind of recirc valve you want or find one at a wreckers for cheap

ok so vicroads doesnt say anywhere that coil overs are illegal....... been searching there rules and regs.....

only thing it does say is that you need an approval cert, so maybe go to an engineer with all the info from the manufacturer and they should give you a cert no worries, just coz its a modification.

thats read off of VSI 26 and VSI 8 from vicroads

ok now i have the car( althouht it wont be registered till tomorrow when i take it into vicroads)
as for the boost controller. the tube going from the wastegate actuator go's into what i assume is piping to the intercooler. does this mean i dont have the factory solenoid? anyone have a pic of where the solenoid is? i couldnt see it

If your positive that it is only 1 piece of hose with no T pieces in it, just cut it and pop it in.

Yeh, that's the right hose.

iirc the solenoid was attached or very very close to the air box, so if your car has a pod filter it was most likely taken out of the equation when the airbox was taken out.

i put the boost controller in my car..literally took 30 seconds..i cut the tube with a pair of scissors and put it in between..easy..... i accidently boosted it to 18psi..lol it fuel cut or something..didnt like that..but runs awesome at 15 psi..well its more like ts on 13-14 psi..but it spikes to 15 psi ..
i got a question...the car feels slow as a mofo under 3500 rpm..and only really feels fast fast just passed 4000 rpm.. ididnt think the turbo would feel that laggy. is that normal for the stock turbo?
