1983 Turbo BOV - Where to pull vacuum?

Recommended Posts

Hey all.  I recently installed a HKS SSQV on my 83 turbo SE.  I'm unsure where to pull manifold vacuum for it though.  I originally T'ed into the vacuum line going to the flap actuator valve, but the more I think about it, the more I think that won't work, or just confusing myself.  Any help from those that have done this?  Thanks in advance, and pictures of where to tap in would be greatly appreciated!

Ok, so I hooked it up per the how-to, but it's not blowing off...what gives? I'm making boost, so it's not stuck open or anything. I read some info that early turbo esprits were fitted with a factory dump valve? I don't see it on mine but maybe I'm looking in the wrong spot? It's an 83, no charge cooler. Any ideas?
