You can unhook the line and just cap it on one of the clamps threads on the hot pipe or turbo.It is a snug fit but will prevent boost leaking out.You will loose bottom end a little and loose a little MPG but will spool that thing to the earth.Have fun and don't blow it up the turbo that is.

you just pull the line off the actuator and put the line on the threads of the boost clamps to keep it from leaking.End done

If you unhook it You need to watch you Boost PSI and keep it under 25. I have mine unplugged just like kainers said (just stuck the end of the red hose on the clamp bolt). But I have a BB Gerrett, and with my set up I don't have to worry about building to much PSI on this turbo. In all, just watch your Boost gauge and I'm sure you will be fine. Good luck:Thumbup:
