I have been spending most of my available free time installing a new intake. And, thanks to the detailed instructions from C4C5specialist, everything has turned out pretty good.

Cept for the back of the manifold. There is a vaccuum tube unused that I don't have a clue what it's for or where it goes. Can anyone help me??

Hi Barbie,
That hose is for your vacuum source for your climate control. Basically, this helps give you your modes, be it defrost, heat, vent, or the like.
So, there should be a rubber hose, which is soft, that slides on top, and the other T end, goes to vacuum source on the upper plenum, over by where the fuel pressure regulator plugs in.
Please let us know how you make out.
I dont remember if you have a service manual, but I think you do.
Page 1B1-40 will have a diagram to reference.
Allthebest, c4c5 hammer

Thanks Paul. I've got 2 Helm's shop manuals and both had the same scamatics. Quick scan of page shows:

I've searched and can't find a female end for this. (boy, I'm leaving myself wide open here) It's probably been like that since the engine swap. I just can't find were it goes....or....should I just cap it off?

FOUND IT!!!!

I was doing the oil change and I found it neatly tucked at the bottom of the firewall. I don't know if it was purposely put there after the engine swap, or if they forgot to reconnect it.

Thanks for your help!
