    How to connect the SBC-iD solenoid hoses

    Since I've noticed a bit of confusion, I'm going to just lay this out...

    Of course, I'm not responsible for anything that you do to your car. This is simply a guide.

    1) Find the "T" fitting on the hose that runs from the compressor outlet to the wastegate actuator. Disconnect the Hose from the "T" side and pull the "T" fitting out, leaving two open ends. Don't lose the hose clamps.

    2) Grab one of the white hose fittings that came with the SBC. It should have one side smaller than the other. Fit the smaller side into the end of the hose that runs from the compressor inlet. Use the hose clamp that you left on there to clamp it down,

    Cut a length of the hose that is supplied with the SBC to run from the fitting you've just installed to the "IN" on the solenoid unit. You want this hose to be as short as possible without kinking or stretching.

    3) Follow #2, but use the hose from the wastegate actuator and run the SBC hose to the "OUT" on the solenoid.
