Under the throttle body on the back of the intake manifold, to the right of the throttle body.

You'll see what I'm talking about.

I must say I'm little surprised that you installed a new turbo, intercooler, and blow off valve, and yet did not know where to connect the vaccum line. just sounds a little odd.

This is where labeling things comes in handy.

Better to ask, then to be wrong and not have you BOV open when it should.....

well were we ran into the problem was one of my EX-friends decided to come help the one day and pulled a bunch of the vacum lines and things and did not mark them so we have been trying to match up the lines for over a month and cant find any type of diagram that shows them

That's kind of what I assumed happened. Did you find what I was talking about? If you have any more, let me know.

Later.
