Were you able to get some of the vacuum leak figured out yet?

Damn that whistle is loud from the leak.

I did find the leak. Apparently the Euro-R manifold does not work well with throttle bodies that have the FITV built in. So, how to seal this hole?

At first I tried this, permatex gray filled in the cavity...then I thought about how poorly that would end up if a chunk decided to fly in the combustion chamber.


Next idea, find a rubber plug. This one hurt me a bit inside because I don't like destroying tools, but it was fairly cheap and it seems to fit the bill perfectly. A rubber mallet cut down into the shape of the cavity.



This was a successful mod. No more vaccuum leaks. Idle is steady at about 800 rpm. I let the car warm all the way up until the radiator fans kicked on a few times. Oil pressure and water temp stayed in a good range. The best part? No leaks!

Now I need to replace some suspension components and drive her for the first time in a while!
