Location of Boost Elbow

ok so i want to do the boost elbow to my 24v but im not sure where it goes. Im planning on just riggin one up with a brass elbow from home depot or something then drilling a hole in it then installing an allen screw. Would it be beneficial for me to have a boost elbow with the mods in my sig? Also if anyone has any pics of there boost elbow installed that would be great just so i could see it and not mistake a term for something else.

Its exactly like you are thinking, just a brass elbow. It screws into the compressor housing on your turbo with a short piece of hose running from it to your wastegate actuator, there is really no mistaking it. I would take a picture and send it to you, but my turbo is completely disassembled right now and may just confuse you more. You can use your stock elbow, and just drill and tap for a 6mmx1.0 allen screw. If you already have the tap and drill, it will cost you about 50 cents to do the mod.

Just a suggestion from reading your sig. You may want to add a fuel pressure gauge to your list, or at least a low fuel pressure warning light. They can save you quick a bit of money.

ok good, i took a second look a few minutes after posting this and was thinking that exact same thing. I wanna do a fuel pressure gauge when i get the funds but im currently saving for a full goerend tranny. Plus i dont really know where would be a good place to mount it.

Well... The fuel pressure gauge is about 40-50 buck at the most... It will save you the ~$1,600 for the VP44 replacement...

Here is a small write up on my gauge pod...

Are those leather seats heated? If you have factory heated seats this won't work for mounting, but if you don't you can mount it in that little cubby pocket to the right of the radio. Thats where mine is. But I too need to find another good gauge mounting spot for my drive pressure gauge thats going in.

no i dont have heated seats, thats a good idea thanks. but do i need some kind of pod to fill in the space around the gauge? I dont currently use that cubby for anything. Should my fuel pressure be higher with a chip than normal because im currently only using level 1 on the chip and i might stop doing that for a while if i dont see a mpg increase this tank.

You can order the plate from rip rook at Sourceautomotive.biz and it only costs like $15. However it doesn't come drilled so you will need a 2 1/16 hole saw or whatever size the gauge is, so you can drill it to fit. A chip will draw your fuel pressure down, and so will a failing lift pump. That is a really common cause of injection pump failure which will run you about 1600 bucks and kill your trans fund.

I don't see a isolator in my setup... Just a $8 dollar needle valve... :
