Gents, I have a problem. I temporarily attached a boost guage to the car. It doesn't register boost or vacuum. How ever, when I drive with a load on the enginge the factory boost guage works up to 7 or 8 psi.... Is that a wastegate problem or vacuum line problem? Thanks guys... powersix

No sir, Zap didn't pay me to call you "sir." Another problem, I was replacing two other vacuum line and I broke a hard plastic line coming out of the vacuum pod that's located on top of the throttle body. Can I run down to the parts store for that line? uzi dunno

no...not available.

just take a small piece of vacuum hose with a small inside diameter and slip the broken ends into it. Not a bad idea to clamp it with a couple of small tie wraps.

Don't bother going to the local dealer either since the parts are long discontinued.

I bought some of the hard plastic lines from NAPA. I'm sure they still sell them in ft. length's.
