Wastegate vacuum line

Evo9-There is a vacuum line to the wastegate and turbo and between that there is a T and one side is not connected to anything did we accidently pull a hose off while installing the Intake or is it supposed to be like this. The reason being is we keep hitting what feels like fuel cut. The car doesn't have boost guage in it so I don't know what psi the car is getting up 2.

its sounds like that is where the boost control is supposed to be. that could explain the system hitting fuel cut symptoms.

Sorry, I just now saw this thread. I hope you fixed it right, because the stock boost system is very finicky and must be 100% correct in order for you to see proper boost. Hopefully, you got a tune for that intake, too!

Plan to get an exhaust then put on electronic boost controller and get a reflash. Does the intake really need a tune ?

Yes, the intake really needs a tune. It's the mod with the single largest effect on the MAF readings and AFRs. It is not a helpful mod to begin with and should not be added unless tuned for it.

TBE, BC, and flash are the best mods for your IX...

Buschur does recommend intakes. They have their own, which is $80 and works fine.

Wait, you have the K&N Typhoon? That is the absolute worst possible intake and cannot be used on the Evo. Please remove it as soon as possible. It has a terrible design flaw inside the MAF pipe. The cone filter is fine and is just like the Buschur filter, so you can use that on the stock rubber MAF pipe, but you CANNOT use the K&N pipe...
