I am having some trouble locating all of the vaccum locations.

I have all the ones for the Throttle body. I see one sticking out of the wiring harness by the distributer. This one is short! I don't remember if it had an extension to it.

The line from the front of the comes back and has a little valve of some sort. It has 2 outlets. One going straight through, and the other has an L shaped rubber adapter.

I dont have the one for the fuel pressure regulator, or the rear line on the plenum. It looks like I need three connections.

I am so close to finaly firing this thing over. the last things needed are these vacuum lines.

Thanks

OK..

Now another question. I removed all the smog stuff and removed my EGR.

- What do you do with the EGR solinoid and it's vacuum lines?

- Will it show any codes not having the EGR removed?

- How will it make the car run?

- The line to the fire wall must be for the A/C?

Yes the line going into the firewall is for the A/C. As long as you blocked off the manifold where the EGR was you'll be fine, it shouldn't throw a code. Just backtrack those lines and delete them all together.:thumbsup:

Great day to be in the shop with all this rain.:laughing:

I wish I was in the garage right now!

I am stuck at work...I am using some of my free time to get this info.:D

I have read a few other posts about removing the egr. Someone ont the other forum said you need to have a chip burned to avoid "engine ping and knocking"

With having the mods I have done. do I need to look into a new chip?

This is what has been done.

- Block .30 over.
- Heads and intake are stock.
- Full exhaust, no cats to mufflers.

And the usuall stuff! removed MAF screen, Opened up air intake lid, K&N Air filter, throttle body by-pass.

Also.....My headers are touching my oil filter. So thats sweet:bang

that sucks, you can go to a shorter filter if you have the long one on there. I wouldn't think you'd need the chip redone but it wouldn't hurt for optimal performance.

What final product should look like
Just use a piece of rubber hose to link vac port to fuel reg , can remove all plastic lines under plenum





- Will it show any codes not having the EGR removed?
May get Code 32 up ; EGR not working

Should connect to a one way valve.
Front port to intake HVAC port as shown above; side port to cruise control and vac ball under drv side head light

Cool!!:thumbsup:

Thanks for all the help. I am hoping to fire it up on Tuesday:partyon:

Connecting the last bits shouldn't take me too long. I still have to have someone weld the o2 sensor bung in my exhaust.

Raid, I thing you mentioned Anti-Venom for this. Right?

I have flushed out the fuel lines and it looked a little nasty. I poured some fuel injector cleaner through the lines and then blew them out with air.

Should I purge some gas through the line with the filter on? Maybe run a hose from the line before the fuel rail, and see what it looks like before I hook it up to the rail?

I just don't want to foul up the injectors.
