Granted if I kept the stock airbox and BPV its cake. Problem is though, it's not the stock airbox from the st162 or the st215 :P

Anyway, here are the ones in question. Pictures are all clickable for larger images.

I connected the two arrows pointing WEST (to the left) together and tapped the boost gauge into that line. Close up of the port I connected to is here.

Following that hard line it's on it goes here:

Referring back to the first picture, the arrow pointing EAST (to the right) is the large f*ing metal tube off the valve cover. I ran this through the DIY oil catch can, and than into the fresh air intake (pre-turbo pipe). The first picture you can see the hoses looping around the little breather valve. The catch can is secured to the bar with some zip ties where the stock st162 ignitor usually is.

PCV line tapped into the intake pipe. I drilled a hole into the pipe, stuck a grommet in and used a double 3/8" barb. It doesn't come out unless you really give it hell.

Now again referring back to the first picture again, the arrow facing DUE NORTH (up) was connected to a hard pipe that runs to a big ass port on the bottom of the intake manifold. I'm assuming this is just the breather valve and does not need to be connected to any sort of intake (pre or post-turbo). I just attached a small breather valve to it so if it needs to suck or release it is not restricted (as seen in the pictures above).

So... was I correct in all my connections here? I'm hoping so cuz it took a while and some of those hoses are NOT coming loose after I put them in....
