    Zlet boost hose help needed

    Hi does anyone know what this hose/tube is supposed to be connected to:



    it runs down the back of the engine to here:



    but its not connected to anything at either end??? Surely its supposed to be connected to something?

    where on the oe wastegate?? as I have a hose coming out of the oe waste gate (in the centre of the 2 hex head bolts that hold it in) already that goes round the back of the engine to the rear bcs (or what I believe to be the rear bcs)

    One end goes on the Vacuum box at the back of the engine (Quite low down under the inlet) and the other end goes to the standard dump valve on the turbo.

    Lee did you see my post three?? Is this a different hose to the one I've mentioned, as there is a hose connected up thats coming out of the oe dump valve and going to what looks to be the rear bcs? Is that not right
