Hmm, that's what I was worried about - I suppose if the intake to the turbo is made from decent diameter tube, there won't be much of a pressure drop below atmospheric even with 100's of cfm of air flying by.Smaay said:the only part of the system that wouldnt be under any pressure is the intake for the turbo. but there wouldnt be any vacume pressure, just outside pressure
Yup yup - thats the route I would go.deltaB said:

What are you running off vacuum under boost?
Thanks - that looks just the ticket, though it is rather pricey and on the wrong side of the atlanticBoosted2.0 said:They make electric vacuum pumps for hot rod NA V8 cars with big cams that don't make much vacuum at idle - summit sells em.
I was under the impression he was making a vacuum reservoir. I remember the #10 coffee cans under the hoods of mid-70s fords. I was suggesting to use the same type check valve as the one for the brake booster, not tap into the booster itself.monkeywrench said:If you're worried about brakes you'll have brake assist the moment you lift off the throttle.
Otherwise, there are some simple vacuum reservoirs designed for the V8 guys and diesels as well as electric pumps as somebody else mentioned.
