    Back from the dead with my $0.02. I don't think you can remove the header tube and cap it with Mac Long tubes. There's hardly enough room to pass a small flat head through so getting a standard wrench on is well maybe impossible.

    make sure the vacuum line to the actuator is hooked up. If its going into boost real quick, it might not be. It should be. Very important that it is. At partial throttle, blower moves more air than the motor can handle. Hence the need for the valve.

    Congrats for you bro! I can't get mine off either due the design of the MAC long tubes. Anyone with a secret? For now mine is simply capped off.

    Whipple 3.4 Vacuum lines

    pulled the whipple to install fuel rails and decided to do the EGR delete. I am stuck on the hose arrangement in the back though. I have a different set up and do not have 2 hoses coming from my boost actuator.

    See picture:
    100_0483.jpg
    and
    100_0434.jpg

    100_0431.jpg

    So how do I arrange my hoses to my boost actuator if I don't have a top hose? do I just leave it and connect the "T" and the rest as shown? or do I have to do something different?

    wanting to do this to clean up the clutter, Is it any different for a KB 2.2? Does the kit Lethal sell include the brass fitting needed?

    you can get brass fittings at Autozone.

    As for my own question...FYI I used the upper vacuum port on the Whipple for my fuel pressure regulator on my triple pump system. Should allow the valve to open 1psi of fuel pressure for every inch of vacuum. we will see how this works.

    feel free to correct me on this but i don't really have any thing else to put on the upper vacuum port and I need the feedback for my pressure regulator :shrug:

    what do i do with the hard plastic line that connects to something in fenderwell? the one that is bigger than all the others? and its not the evap emisions port, also where do i hook the other end of the or is that not need since my whipple 2.9 has only one port that comes out the top and hooks up to the base

    Do all brands of headers have that tube sticking out that needs to be capped?

    You guys really need to STOP and think about the vacuum line routing instead of just blindly following the pictures. Its really easy to understand and regardless of what blower is on the car should be pretty easy to figure out which vacuum line goes where.
