I have a feeling this was/is more than a little bleed

It made a noticeable difference in shifting so...

I don't think I can get away with the massive leak though...some compoents of my heating system worked a little better (less defrost and more floor) so I am enjoying that. But I still have a bad pod or two and my ACC needs resoldering...

Do you have an entire picture of the engine bay and the new vacuum line routing? The one picture isn't helping me much. I've read your post over and over again. I'm a visual guy.

I'll get it for you on Friday. However, there isn't much else to see other than the aforementioned photos. From a distance, you won't see any vacuum lines running forward and up to the valve cover. They are all removed.

Brian,

Off the topic, but I noticed you don't have heat shields installed under your rubber air filter mounts. I didn't know they existed until I replaced mine. They are little steel "cups" with a bolt hole in the bottom the sit under the mounts. They are supposed to protect the rubber from radiant heat from the manifold. BTW, the engine looks much cleaner that way.

Well, I still have a few things to do before I start it. It needs the line from the manifold to the overboost valve, the upper radiator hose, the crossover line from the pump housing to the head, a clamp at the rear muffler and I have to set the injection timing (with the RIV tool ), and it needs one 30 mm plug for the head and then coolant, and then the injection lines.

Maybe late Saturday.

Sorry, couldn't find the receipt. When I asked the dealer for new mounts they asked me if I needed the heat shields, to which I replied, "What heat shields?" As I recall, the were a couple of dollars each.

OK, thanks anyway. I have a dealer where I get 20% but they are absolutely stupid when it comes to finding anything. The kid is very helpful, but knows nothing. The old man (my age ) can't be bothered to look up nickel and dime items

So, in effect, am I blocking off the lines to and from the black 3-way valve box where I have the arrows?

I finally got around to doing this mod. Instantly, I noticed the "clunk" at the 2-1 downshift disappeared. I'm sure there are other benefits I have yet to notice. I had to use some ingenuity. I didn't have any vacuum hose small enough to fit on the vacuum lines w/o falling off, so I cut off some "legs" on my old 3-way connectors I no longer needed to use, and used them to create a straight line where the 3-way lines used to be.
