Like posted, intake mani for your vacuum source. Be careful, because you do not want excessively long lines or them running over hot parts that can melt them.

2 bolts screw into the flange which connects to your manifold. The others are for the wastegate to actaully open up which means you want to put those gold piece's inside the bolt and screw into the wastegate.

alright here's a good rundown...go to a parts vendor(advanced auto or whatever you prefer) grab a ton of tiny hose clamps, and 2 or 3 vacuum line tee's...now find some vacuum lines while the car is running and pull them to ensure your getting a good amount of pressure from it(you'll hear it and can feel it) cut the line in half install the tee then plug your wastegate/bov/gauge to it repeat this step as many times as you have things to hook up....

now use hose clamps (if desired) if you dont want vacuum lines coming off your wastegate and pushing your turbo to 20lbs. i would...also another good thing to use for your gauge is solid plastic vacuum line...it doesnt flex as much as the rubber and gives you a more accurate reading...
