wastegate solenoid vacuum line help?

truck is a 2000 7.3

I put a different turbo on the truck and I am not using the stock intake system, therefore I do not have a spot for the other vacuum line coming off of the wastegate solenoid mounted on the turbo spider ( i believe its a bleed off line) that goes back into the intake. I know the one line (red line I believe) goes onto the wastegate for the turbo. What can are my options to do with the other vacuum line that normally bleeds into the intake, would it cause any problems leaving it off, so therefore it would be more of an open atmosphere deal since it is just going into the intake anyway?

any help would be appreciated !

Re: wastegate solenoid vacuum line help?

Does your new intake have any rubber hose? Can you fabricate an opening for it such as drilling a hole in the rubber a bit smaller than the green hose. Just an idea, I am not sure what leaving it hang open will do.
