returned the brake booster back to stock with the rs master cylinder to match it so i am able to bleed the breaks tomorrow.

finishing up replacing hoses

have a bit of tidying up to do in the bay then i can finally wire up lc-2/ boost gauge.

Builds going slow at the moment. classes started back up and im swamped: physics, calculus, engineering, chemistry is killing me

On my car, I t'd into that same line for cruise control. It should work for a boost gauge, but my boost gauge hose is t'd onto the hose that is coming off of the bypass valve.

that hose coming from the intake manifold goes to it. They T'd into for some reason, I did for cruise, but I don't know why they did.

Here is the breakdown I used to figure out how everything is laid out, at least for a USDM WRX 205
