That was a great post. I used those diagrams to delete my EGR and all the vacuum lines and other nonsense. I went a little further and removed the vacuum amplifier (flying saucer) and routed my vacuum from my VCV right down to my trans. I fine tuned the vacuum with an orifice that I found in the mess of vacuum lines I removed...mostly because I was too lazy to remove the little cap off the VCV adjustment screw.

I also took off the funny vacuum line to the turbo. I forgot what that one was called but it didn’t need it. ARV? Maybe.

The car runs beautifully and is easy to understand. I got a nice supply of plastic vacuum hose and tees to tinker with as well.

Good luck.
