    Because it's his car and he'll do what he wants to it... You know, for someone who started a thread on 'rice' and says everyone should help people understand and 'educate those still confused'... you're not helping this guy at all.

    redneck - any vacuum source you can T into would work perfectly fine.

    i would be glad to help , just wondering why a 44 year old would want , hell if it for looks more power to him . and no not any vacuum line he can tee into , Tee off the manifold, but do not use the line going to the fuel pressure regulator or map sensor as a vacuum leak at either will make you very unhappy

    Because usually i put an autoguage on most of the cars i have had and i try to drive off of it, it has markings for accel best mileage and decell, so even if psycologically it works.

    go for the manifold and I agree to avoid the before mentioned sensors, the closer to the manifold you get your connection the better your reading. you could even tap a new hole if you wanted just avoid the intake runners and try to aim for an area of low turbulance.
