...but the description plainly says that "With our boost controller we will email you *installtion* instructions *apon* purchase and give you great customer service."

have you tried emailing him? Also, for the future - if the description has spelling errors all over, it's a good idea to leave that one be.

You could have built one for about half what you paid.

If I had to guess, I would say use the tee to splice a vacuum line with the air pointing away from the vac source. Then run a vac line from the tee to the port on the boost controller that has the arrow. The other port runs to the wastegate. If it was me I wouldn't use the tee but instead run a separate line from the vac tree to the boost controller.

Also, you want to mount the b.c. as close to the wastegate as possible. As far as adjusting boost, start by screwing the knob in all the way in and the backing it out 5 full turns. Take it for a test drive, be careful to watch the boost gauge, and then adjust accordingly. These are the instruction per Rick Gillis' boos valve and should apply to yours also, good luck. And IMHO I would not leave the guy negative feedback simply because he forgot to send instructions...
