I am in the process of adding a vacuum resevoir to the T-type.
Do I need the brake filter inline before the resevoir, or is it ok to run without it?

What are you guys talking about? The one way check valve that plugs in the booster? That is not a filter and the check valve is required.

No, I don't mean the check valve into the brake booster.
The hose is tee'd into the pcv line at the vacuum block, then goes through a small inline filter, and then to the check valve on the brake booster.
I thought TTA's didn't have this filter.
Can anyone confirm this?

FROST -I've been running with no filter for 7 years now on the GN. The hose goes directly from the aluminum vaccum block on the throttle body to the check valve on the booster. No problems so far, so I guess it's ok? dunno :)

Good to hear! Even when new, the filter was a bit of restriction in the line. I would like to have the most vacuum possible for those high boost street launches.... :D
