    So i bought a missing link about a month ago for my 92 civic, i was told that it was off a z6 and that it would work with my d15b7. Come to find out after i was finally able to get to my civic in storage....it wont work cuz the d15b7 has a firewall mount MAP :mad: . So now i am looking into get the other model of missing link or doing some check valve thing(not too sure how it works). So if anyone wants to buy a missing link let me know!

    don't waste your $ on missing link, go to your local fish store and buy two = three check valves. It does the same thing for a lot less.

    the TB mounted ones just have the vac source in the TB itself. simply plug the whole and run a vac line to the map- and zip tie it to the firewall.

    I couldn't find it either. Mind you I only did a quick 5 mins search on the net. What I would suggest is this:

    - use a T-Fitting off the intake manifold to the 1st check valve and a pipe
    - use a Cross(4way) Fitting from there to add on two more check valves and
    the MAP sensor.

    The solution is already ghetto phapolous; you might as well take it all the way
