    Ive searched and found nothing. With regards to the n249 bypass, what is the negative effect of using a t-piece to connect the dv to the fpr to the intake manifold? I've read people saying do not T into the FPR, what happens if you do? what sympoms do you see with this?

    Leave the FPR to have its own vacuum feed... its important this gets a reliable vac feed as it will affect fuelling causing it to potentially go lean and the first you know about it typically is when a piston melts...

    Adding boost gauges and other stuff off the FPR feed increases its potential for failure... if you do this to the DV and a pipe comes off or something at least the flutter noise of the DV will alert you to something being wrong..
