Guys,

Does anyone know if Mity Vac still sells the turbo charger vacuum test kit? Mike Savino used his kit on my car today and now I have to have one. I found all kind of leaks I never knew I had. Also found out my Autometer boost gauge is 2 pounds to high.

Hey Chuck,

we will have to nickname Mike to MityVac-Man
.

I was surprised and thrilled at what he found on my car. Let me know when you find out where and how much.

I owe Mike S.(Mity-vac Man) a big thanks. He spent a several hours on my car helping me trouble shot my leaks. After doing this, I would recommend everyone check your car for leaks. I think you will surprised at what you find. It idles and drives better than it has in two years.

Mike, I just spoke with Tom M. and a new EGR valve is on the way. I ordered you a new gasket and will get your loaner back by middle of this week. Thanks for letting me borrow one.

Scottie, I called Mityvac and they still carry the system Mike used for $58. I called a vender they recommended in my area and they want the same price with shipping. I'm going to call back and try to see if they will work me a deal if I can get a few people interested. I heard they were being discontinued and sold for $20 or something. The part # I got from the Mityvac sales rep. is #6890 (Turbo charger functions kit). I'll keep you posted on what I find.

Hey Chuck, I want one of those Mity Vac kits if you find a good deal. I'm sure I have a few vaccum leaks with the rough idle I have. Most Sy/Ty guys tell me its just the chip, but I want to go through the entire system anyhow. What kind of Autometer boost gauge do you have? I wonder how far mine could be off.

Hey Mike, how was the show Saturday? I figured it was raining anyhow, so I stayed at work. Are you coming to the Sy/Ty F.A.S.T. wrench session? I'll definately be there all three days.

STOP !!!!!!!
Don't spend that much money for it !!!!!!
There is a place called Premium (I think)...
Anyway their # is 800-432-8722
They sell the MityVac Part#6890 for the "discontinued price" of $18.41 each. There is; however, a $25 order minimum so get a couple of guys together and give them a call. They have about 38 left in stock. Guess how I know?

Guys,

I called this morning and was only able to order 3 at a time. At first they said the price was $58 and after asking for the clearance price they sold them for $19 a piece. For some reason they would only sell me 3. So, call 1-800-432-8722 and order yourself one. A must have tool for us TR guys and gals. Jim I got one for you but probably won't have it until Friday or Saturday. If your going to the track for the Outlaw event on Sunday I should get it to you then.

We should thank MJ for posting this information for us. Thanks again MJ you really helped me and others out!

Chuck--Thanks a lot. You have email.

MJ--Thanks for letting us know of this great deal. That is what makes this board so great..sharing of info.

Anyone have any specifics on the Sunday event, i.e., is it open to everyone, will there be class competition or run anyone, etc.? Thanks.

Chuck, the rebuild kit is here. I think it would be hard to find locally, I'll drop it by either tonight or tomorrow night.
