    Hello so this may be a noob question so im sorry if it has been answered before. Couldnt find much info with my searches.
    I'm trying to figure out vacuum signals for my 16v GZE converted to turbo. (afm)
    So on my manifold there's a bolt type thing with 3 nipples comming off it. Will it be ok to run my FPR, boost guage and blow off valve off this? Doing it this way, it each item receive enough amount of vacuum to run properly..

    Also there are 2 nipples towards the front of the throttle body. From what I've seen people block these individually. Can these also be used as a vacuum source ?

    Any light on this will be aawsome.
    Cheers

    Hey mate.
    I'm running a 16v turbo engine
    The 3 nipples together.
    One is for my fuel pressure regulator
    The second one is for my MAP sensor on my ECU and the third goes to my boost gauge.
    The two at the front I have one blocked off and the other goes to my BOV
    But I'm not sure if I've set that up right as it doesn't seem to be working haha
    Hope this helps

    It will be fine to run off those nipples. Take the plug off one and put you finger there... it works!

    Yeah ok might just keep the front 2 blocked and run the rest off the 3 nipple bolt thingo! Just wasn't sure if that would give everything enough vacuum or not.

    Cheers guys
