First thing... don't trust the boost guage on the tacho hook up an external boost gauge and confirm you are really only getting .6 bar. Was it indicating .8bar before the installation, a .2bar leak is pretty big.

The smaller hose connection goes to the warm up valve, you can probably leave it disconnected.

You might want to ask around about whether the K27-7200 is the right turbo for your plans. I installed one and I didn't like the fact I lost the rush of the turbo coming on at 3k and it didn't produce power all the way to redline like the 3DLZ. I think it needs the right cams to get the most out of it.
