dirty grubs.....
whats the issues u r facing with boost lines?
very basic too do.
compressor housing nipple put a vac line to waste-gate actuator.
running a boost gauge, run it from a nipple on the plenum chamber.

Pobably the best thing u did was get out of this valley haha. I kno i want to lol

If i was to drill a hole into the plenum and screw in a nipple piece would that work?

not a t-piece from the compressor housing just a barb fitting.
