    hey guys i was looking around my car and i noticed the top vac line on the boost control solinoid was just hanging there, and the nipple on my intake had a vacuum cap on it. should i re connect them or leave the cap on the intake nipple?

    Lol. Where does the line on the wastegate go? Follow it back to its boost source. If it goes to someplace other than the BCS let us know where it leads to or take a picture and post it up.

    no the line on the wastegate to the solenoid is connected. im talking about the second line that goes from the solenoid up to the intake right after the maf.

    If the BCS is still working then its "bleeding" boost source pressure on the wastegate. Someone was trying to get more boost out of it. Either hook it up and make sure the solenoid works or eleminate it and go straight from the compressor to the wastegate. Uping the boost then only requires a simple MBC. :)
    I use a very simple bleeder valve, in my cabin, to adjust boost but most of the time they are mounted under the hood in between the WG and the boost source.

    Nah it won't make a vacuum leak but it may leak boost source pressure that should be going to the wastegate.
