Are you sure about this? On my MB (same as yours) the frequency valve takes
its low pressure input from the intake elbow of the turbo and its high pressure
input from the back (bulkhead end) of the inlet manifold. I understood that this
tapping is from a drilling that runs the full length of the manifold to the
turbo side of the throttle. Is this not so?
