can some one tell me what this little tube goes to
hey everyone in my albums I have some pics named this is weird in them there is a pic of a little metal tube that looks like it should be hooked up to something does anybody know what this is and what it goes to thanks.

buddy you got some palsy. (sorry if you really do)
the lead comes from your top slot in the vsv valve on your thermostat housing. wich runs into the first slot in the throttle body.
can you try and drag n drop your pics into your post? it would make it hella ezier.
this will show you what im talking about.

here is what the guy I bought it from did.
Ok here is what the guy I bought it from did man I probably have all kind of hoses in the wrong place[IMG]file:///C:/Users/Owner/Pictures/2010-03-12%20this%20is%20what%20that%20looks%20like/this%20is%20what%20that%20looks%20like%20001.JPG[/IMG]

so what do you think
ok so this is most definitely wrong do you know where I can get a diagram of the right way to hook up all the vacuum lines

Green7mgte 03-12-2010 09:37 PM

no idea why he would do that. Now im not saying that for your particular set up its wrong. (it seems wrong!) but I don't really know. I have seen the first connection your missing not in use on a particular set up (it was by passed or w/e) but don't ask me as to why. (car for sell section the guy with the 700hp baby blue beast)

anyhow here is a link to the tsrm vacume routing
this one will help too.

good luck man. post any more questions you have.

those go to your egr valve pickup. there shoud be two vacuum lines that come out of a little disk above your egr valve. one should say r and one should say m. there should be a diagram on your hood that explains that. i just put my throttle body back together today, shouldn't be too hard to get some vacuum lines for it.

I called the guy I bought it from and asked if he bypassed it for some reason he told me that when they got the car back together it was idling rough so the just put hoses in different places till it idled better.Wow!!!!! instead of tracking down the reason for the bad idle they just started sticking hoses anywhere until they though it sounded better I am going to take it to a professional to have it fixed and tuned.

did you end the call by saying Smooth move exlax?

dannys35 03-13-2010 04:01 AM

I am thinking about sending him the bill for the repairs and the tune:rofl:

you get to a point when working on the car where you just give up.
happened to me when the headgasket got fixed. everything was being put back together and a bolt for the exhaust manifold stripped.
Damnit! I said it'l get fixed once I upgrade my exhaust header. (3 years later I still have an exhaust leak) I WILL fix it before it gets worse but damn if thats not allot of work. My parts are starting to come in so I should have my car very far away from bone stock like it is now by the start of summer hopefully. Im starting with a lex afm and going 3" from elbow to test pipe. (cat back exhausts are freaking expensive, plus i replaced it about 2 years go, i cant really see just scrapping a perfectly good exhaust) allready have my safc1 wired up waiting for my wideband to come in so I can weld a bung onto my dp. and once I find a decent exhaust header ill fix my leak. oh and Ill have my rebuilt ct-26 upgraded to 57" trim by mid april. just trying to arrange a Daily drive so I can take my turbo off.

wow sorta got off topic there. wtf did i start this post trying to say?
