Installing Mechanical Boost Controller

A few tips for installation:
1. Make sure the vehicle has had sufficient time to cool down.
2. Gather all tools needed beforehand.
3. Buy a couple of extra hose clamps and barbed fittings in case you break or lose the originals.

Parts Installed:




Step 1:

Locate the rubber
hoses connected to the top of the air filter canister (labeled "air can" in the photo) near the intercooler piping.
Disconnect these two hoses from the fitting. If you follow these two lines, you'll notice that one connects to the base of the air canister
and the other connects to the wastegate on the turbo just below the exhaust manifold.
Disconnect both of these and discard the two hoses.


Step 2:
Using the supplied hose from the boost controller kit, attach one end to the wastegate (circled in the photo)
where the old hose was connected. Be sure to use a zip tie or hose clamp to prevent the hose from coming loose or leaking.
Attach the other end of this hose to the boost controller.


Step 3:
Locate the hose that runs from the blow off valve to the intake manifold. It's somewhat hidden by the intercooler piping and the radiator hose.
Tee into the hose using the plastic barbed tee fitting supplied in the boost controller kit.
Note: the hose you're tapping into has a lightweight insulation that you'll need to cut back in order to attach the fitting properly.
Run the third hose (supplied in the kit) from the tee and attach it to the boost controller. Be sure to use zip ties or hose clamps to secure the hoses to the fitting.


Step 4:
At this point, you've run all your hoses and attached them to the proper points using hose clamps or zip ties.
It's time to mount the boost controller. Simply fasten the boost controller to the radiator fan shroud with an
existing bolt and the supplied clamp. Set the boost to the initial setting specified in the manufacturer's instructions.
You've just finished the boost controller install. It's time to testdrive the car and dial-in your settings.
