Just a few questions about a VNT based block system.
I deleted the vapor canister out of the equation so can i just cap off both things on the throttle body?
My boost gauge wont work and i put all lines in one by one, so what line specifically goes to the dash.
Can i just not plug the cruise in or is that a problem waiting to happen.
I can take specific pics if needed

If you removed the canister you can remove all lines going to the canister and purge solenoid.
The boost gauge gets its vacuum source from a plastic line coming from the R/S of the firewall, you have to connect to that plastic line.
The plastic line has a rubber connector so you can connect right to it.
Leaving the vacuum line to the cruise disconnected would be a vacuum leak.
If you are not going to use the cruise or are removing it the line needs to be capped or capped at its source.

Ha after an hour of looking i ended up finding the line for the boost vac gauge.... Why the hell is it on the right! i thought. I will probably leave the cruise on. I am now vacuum leak free.My map sensor is junk though so ill fix that soon. What do you have connected to the bottom hole in your your Baro, mine is just open.
Thanks for the Vacuum block thread, very helpful!

one port in the baro solenoid should be open to atmosphere.
It gets cycled periodically to compare manifold pressure against absolute iirc.
