Yeah, it's *REALLY* simple. All ya need to do is plug into a source of
manifold pressure, run that into an aquarium bleeder valve, and route the
output of that to the tap on the wastegate. Then, route the vent of the
bleeder to the low pressure side of the turbo, since you don't want to be
sucking air into the intake when the engine is actually under vacuum
(you get a standard vacuum leak if you just bleed to the atmosphere).
The alternate method is to get a pressure regulator (like they use on
welding tanks, except designed for low pressures) and stick that between
your source of manifold pressure and the wastegate tap. The advantage
here is that there is no bleeder hose to route to the low pressure side
of the turbo, but regulators can get a bit pricey.
