I ended up using push loc hose and fittings. So it seems as though that Facebook being my image hosting site was a terrible idea.

Thanks Adam! I haven't been able to test the injectors as of yet because I have not dropped the boosted motor into the car. I plan on having it swapped in before the end of May.

Re: Wes' S14 "Leigh"

Some progress is better than no progress. The manifold I have has been molested quite a bit. As in there are not many vacuum ports. Everything that wasn't needed was welded.

Re: Adam's formerly supercharged... now soon-to-be-turbo'd,

You could bolt the wastegate in its location and then get your fittings to go in the direction you need then pull the wastegate out and safetywire it outside the car. we have to do that with some components that we work on.

Re: Adam's formerly supercharged... now soon-to-be-turbo'd,

Adam, I'd safety wire the two bolts together. Make sure they have positive pull, and tend to tighten. Also be sure to make the "pigtail" bent over so it doesn't poke or damage anyone or thing. With .32 wire, make sure you have 7-12 twists per inch. Twists should go all the way to the hole, and never...
