Which mityvac should I buy?

Which mityvac will do all the vac/ pressure tests I might need to do on my '87 300d turbo? Where is the best place to buy one?

I recommend the 4050 Sliverline Plus. It does vacuum and pressure, and comes with a bunch of accessories like brake
bleeding fittings and such.

I made the mistake of getting the 4000 Silverline. Comes with accessories and fittings, but the pump/gauge does not do pressure. Which means I need another gauge setup for measuing boost. 4050 would have done both.

I got a cheap non "mityvac" brand vacuum tester from harbor freight, its all steel/brass, not cheapo plastic like the mityvac brand one, which was $20 more I may add. For $16 I got a vacuum tester, made 100% of metal (its rugged!) brake bleeding accessories, and tubing. It also has a nifty little bleeder valve, and a high quality large vac gauge on it, up to 30in vac measurement. We used it to test the locking system on our '83 and it works great!
