I highly recommend you do some more research or ask questions before buying anything. For what you spent on the PW alone you could have done a DP, tune, and found a used Perrin or AVO TMIC.
Blowing vac lines isn't fixed with another TMIC. Seems from your first post here that you aren't focusing on a new turbo, but your building your car as if it's going stage 3 within the week.
That or he could have BulletProofed his OEM TMIC by buying the kit from BarManBean and saved around $300. But thats just advice, its OP's money and he can do what ever he wants with it.
