FluffyCow I might do this this weekend. Hope my leak is in the vac accumulator and not the booster.

This is a great post. Going to be doing the entire Vac reduction this weekend. I will be using this as a guide for the clutch part. Thanks!!

Alright I'm about to go to Lowes to grab a bolt, but how do you guys make it seal? Teflon tape?

Thanks for posting this, I did this today. When I shut the engine off I hear a hiss from the area now for about 3-5 seconds. Is this normal? I'm pretty sure everything is tight.

The OP said he used a metric pipe plug. Does this seal by itself? Pressure tested? Need to use Teflon tape? Also, does anyone happen to have specs on the plug needed?

Thanks!

This "bullet shaped" plastic valve is inserted into the hose. You can probably see the "bulge" in the factory hoses.

.
I've also done some work on mine, but I didn't delete anything really - just replaced all the hardlines with tubing. I wish I could find a small internal check valve like that to neaten up the plumbing changes, but I'm probably going to have to go with an external one. I tried getting the stocker into the tubing I'm using, but it's stiffer than the stock rubber so no go. I'll probably try again sometime, but the plastic CV won't take too much abuse.
