The vaccume line blew off of my Fuel preasure regulator, while I was driving! I was messin with a buddy for a while. The car just didn't feel right. As I was checking my oil and spiffing up the engine compartment(you could eat off it, no shi#'n) I saw the line was off the regulator. I was rompin the car, so what damage may have occured? I took a quick listen to the car, and the engine sounded ok. I'm sure its gotta affect somthing. Maybe I dodged another bullet. ugh powersix

Without the line on you wouldn't be increasing fuel pressure as your increasing throttle. So you'd be running lean. You could always put a tie rap on it to be safe.

The car has been running like crap recently. The car just feels heavyer? It shifts late, and bogs. The boost soetimes shoots way up. Its been like this for over a month now. I have been meaning to take it in, but just haven't had the money. Does that sound like the pcv? I don't remember changing it for a while. They probably don't last as good in a turbo car. I also thought that it was a blocked cat, or my converter. Any opinions welcome. Thanks guys. help
