My question to all is have you had any problems trying to fit the supplied intake with the kit cause no matter which way i twist the charge pipe and intake i cant seem to fit it on at all. I built myself a custom intake but i can fit the pcv hose nor the blow off valve b/c there is no ports for it, do you think this would affect anything and my plan is to put a breather filter on the end of the pcv hose leeme know asap any thoughts or ideas. that would be helpful and appreciated

best place for accurate reading is at the brake booster line going to the manifold. Install a T at that area. Here is the T fitting

I just have a rule to not use plastic parts when theres a metal one available. If not from the brake booster, the EVAP port on the bottom of the throttle body works well.

Some way some how i go the intake to fit its wierd how the kit didnt come with a coupler to fit onto the supercharger but i bought a 4 inch one and made eveything fit was quite a struggle but i got it and i got the boost guage in mounted on the a pillar with amber orange color looks good. Didnt really want it on the bottom by the sunglass panel b/c i wouldnt be able to see it when i need to. Thanks
