The boost source will be directly under where the air intake piping attaches to the turbo. It will be sticking out and facing parallel (going the same direction) with the turbo intake port. If you take out the air intake you can see it easily, otherwise you will have to reach under and feel. It may be set a little bit back from the turbo opening but its there. It is part of the turbo housing so you can't miss it.
In looking closer at the picture, that does not look like the stock T25 turbo. That turbo has the outlet on the top and a J pipe on it. Can't see any markings though so someone who knows the turbos better than me can tell you. This also means your boost source might be in a different place.
T-25 is stock turbo and 14b/16g can make more power than the stock t-25 all you have to do is look at the diagram. That nipple that you found aka the hose that gose to your waist gate cut it and buy a splinter type thing for the hose and hook it to the bottom line on the boost solinoid and your all set
And hook the top line up right after my mass air flow sensor on the short ram? Just curious because If it does need to hook up to that I will have to modify it a little bit just because there is no nipple like there should be from others I have seen.
You can just leave it the way it is as an option. You will be running on wastegate pressure. You can use an mbc and not have to worry about going to the intake. I would leave it and get a boost gauge to see what's going on. I would then consider wideband before anything else. If you have a non stock turbo you may also have non stock fuel injectors.
Alright I've got a buddy who knows a lot more about dsm than I do so I'm going to try and see if he will take a look at things this weekend with me..just need to figure out what's going on with the high idle issue Its gonna end up ruining my tranny at some point..I'm hoping that it's just cause by something not hooked up correctly because from what I've seen on here it could be a million things
Read iloveboost post 23 again. As he suggests, I suspect your stock boost control solenoid is disconnected (hoses hanging there) because you have an aftermarket boost controller. Check if so - the way he states.
There is no manual or any other sort of boost control that I can find anywhere I've looked..and I've been looking for a boost controller and Guage but I am trying to find something that will be accurate that isn't real expensive.
