Well, I got tired of these vac lines tee'd off each other, and the general mess of differnt size/color lines, so I decided to clean it up a bit!!!

I figured a vacuum manifold would be a good solution vs everything tee'd of the tiny port on the back of the manifold... so i took a piece of square tube, taped a few 1/8 npt holes, welded the ends up, got a few fittings at the hardware store and some new lines and well here it is






on the car




Let me know what you guys think!! It seems to work well, no leaks, holds boost, and my bov seems to react a little quicker.

Total cost was about 6 bucks from the fitting and a few buck for some new lines, I had all the metal stock kicking around the garage

u should run those lines from under the intake manifold,IMO
Yeah, the line going over the top is for the BOV, i really should hook it under.... but I got lazy, and late for work!!!

BOV, FPR, boost gauge, boost controller, VPC pressure sensor, and the last one is for the cruise control that originally plugged into the back of the manifold

Nice job catch.
Did you get your VPC used? The reason I ask is because one of the parts they offer is a multi-barbed fitting that replaces the one on the front of the plenum.

Yea, I picked up the VPC used, so I was on my own when it came to getting vac too it.... I think the VPC may be for sale anyways!!

Thanks man, the GE one isn't too expensive... 40 bucks I think.
Those from mcmaster are nice though, you can kinda custom build it to your needs

You son of a bitch! Is that a purple tial!

:lol: Copy-cat!

Yea, I'll admit it, I'm basically trying to clone your car!!!

j/k.... I picked it up used on ebay, so I couldn't chose the color, I really dig the purple though, plus the valve rocks!!! its a pure function device and super clean looking

looks good! sell them
lol maybe, but for the price you can get the GE one or mcmaster ones I doubt it would be worth it. I mean it took me an hour or two to cut, drill, tap, weld, grind, paint ect
