I got a 87 Shelby Daytona and i am at a roadblock in trying to figure out how to install the turbo xs high performance boost controller. The diagrams shown on sites of how to install is different from my setup. There is no hose connecting from the turbo to the wastegate(http://www.turboxs.com/HPBCinstallation.htm), with my setup its just a hose coming out from the side of wastegate and going to the left side of my engine with a bunch of vac lines. I know this sounds stupid, believe me at this moment im calling myself an idiot but anyways i just need a step by step instruction from anybody on how to set the controller up the right way. Ifanyone has pics or anything that would help alot. Please i need help.
Thanks much

on that particular turbo in your instructions; the turbo's outlet was tapped for the vacuum hose to go the wastegate. yours doesn't, so the easiest thing to do is to tap into the closest vacuum line from the turbo outlet you can find and T it off w/ a vacuum hose that goes through the boost controller and into the wastegate. get a "T" fitting to do this.. it looks like a T . when you find that vacuum line close to the turbo outlet, cut it in half, run it into the left side of the T and run the other side into the right side of the T. Run the line (possibly the one that came with the kit if it's long enough) that goes to the boost controller off the bottom of the T. run that line to the boost controller and into the wastegate.
as for the existing wastegate line, just plug that off. Right guys?? (i dont have a TD sitting outside anymore. just the rice eating slantie.)

On my csx-t with the same boost controller I have the fine adjusting screw (bleed) bottom nipple hosed off to the wastegate and the coarse adjusting screw horizontal nipple hosed to the turbo compressor outlet nipple. That is ALL I have. Now, I'm not sure if that is correct or if there's a better way to have the hoses setup. I'm not totally sure I understand what you said above. It seems to me there would be no reason to tee into a vacuum line if the boost controller is already getting pressure (well in my setup anyway) from the compressor outlet nipple. I guess I will have to try it. Thanks
