vacuum/boost source -> Boost controller --> wastegate

thats the order that the stuff goes just split into the wastegate vacuum line and put the boost controller in there in the middle of them...

ok...so I'm looking at those cheap 20.00 controllers on ebay. and under my hood, I'm seeing a vacuum line going to this boost sensor type thing. so do I just T it into that?

Really i think you should take a picture just to make sure you're doing the right thing.

The gold thing on the turbo is the wastegate actuator.

i wouldnt trust does manual controllers on ebay... but thats not my problems just giving a opinion... yeah the boost sensor type thingy is your actuator the vacuum line that goes to it cut it and put the controller there like T, just as u said... thats it...
