The "tit" you are speaking of is a hose barb and that has to feel Vacuum from the intake manifold. There should be a hose from there from your old BPV.

Intake manifold is on the other side of the engine from where your working.

If you don't know what it is, you really shouldn't be trying to put a turbo on your car.

STOP, get a manual, before you do some damage and can't fix it.

the hose for your BOV needs to have boost/vacuum reference, the same as a boost gauge.

But from the sounds of it, you should pick up the book "Maximum Boost" by corky bell, before you kill your motor

"boosting fine" untill your compressor wheel backspins because of surge that should either be vented or even better, recirculated. The bypass is an integral part of a turbo system, it is there for a reason. You run the risk of your impellar nut backing off (it's reversed thread) and from that point, bye bye turbo-shredded metal everywhere.

look at magik8's scans of the shop manual
