Anyone have one laying around they want to sell?  I'm gearing up to install my 14G and I want to up the boost a bit too.  I know I can just buy a new one or eBay or some other site, figured a check here first.  I'd rather pay one of you than some random business.

Cheap ones suck tail so much. Buy a good one the first time, I bought a hallman pro and have used it on multiple vehicles and it works flawless every time. Unlike some cheap ones I've owned where 1/4 turn equates to like 16psi the hallman pro with the ceramic ball  is nice and easy, every full turn is 1psi. You can pick them up on Ebay for like $60

Funny thing ... someone PM'd me about having a Hallman Pro in blue (which matches the car nicely), so I was able to pick that up for 45 bucks!  It's on it's way.  Now I need to start digging around the FAQ's and figuring out the recommended vacuum connections.

EDIT:  Does your OVCP have a nipple?

Yeah, it does.  I know it needs to go between the OVCP and the WG.  The thing I'm digging through old posts about is the extra ports on the WG since I'll still be using the 3 port WG.  All the other MBC I've hooked in my life have just been to a single port wg.

The plugged port needs a zip tie.
Far right port goes the boost controller then to OVCP nipple.
The middle port just the the right of red nipple stays open like in pic.

That's good info right there Import.  I found a very similar image in an old thread.  So, I'm glad to see there's some agreement.
