Morning all after the engine swap into another chasis we can't work out if there's supposed to be a vacuum tube from the green and white one way check valve to anywhere on the car, green side is connected under the throttle body can't figure out the white side connection.

Thanks

Yes there should be. The unconnected side attaches to the VFAD under the air box. If you go here viewtopic.php?f=58&t=35629

Open the documents, in engine, intake air system hose routing. You'll see where it goes.

3rd brake light? My bulb failed and that happened to mine a while back. I'd read about it on here so I was pretty sure that was my issue when it happened, hopefully yours is as easy to find what it is.

Could be split wiring between the boot lid and 3rd brake light as well.

Anyone else with and enlarged/ large street port feel like a turbo kicks in at 7k? I don't know if its because of the street port or because of something else.
