    I am trying to finish up the mockup under the hood so I can pull the motor to finish/paint it. I need to figure out the crap for the vac lines and catch can for my now vortech supercharged system and honestly have no idea what to do. I Am also going to be ditching all the EGR crap and not sure what I need there so any help on this would be helpful and thanked...

    Vac lines is easy one. Your smog and egr all come from the fender well. It takes one line from the manifold to the fender and from there it goes to egr and smog. Dont plug in thr line going to the maifold or anything coming from the fender well and don't worry about it.

    Funny I was thinking the same thing just 3 secs before reading this. Ok so all that shtuff in the pass fender, if I am reading this correctly, just yank that out? I Just wanted to make sure I am hearing that correctly(from reading it ;)) before I take action as I am pulling the front end off today.

    What vac lines do I need to keep? I have a vac tree to make it all neat/clean.

    If you want to save the lines for another time. Or sell them. People always looking to by those. This is only the colored ones. Those not include the evap one. .just unplug them back at the fender you will have just the small sensor and vac canister left.

    it has the option for sealed or vented but thought the sealed option is what was recommended? I am still fairly new to motors and learning a lot more then I know so sorry for stupid questions...

    You can run it either way. My 95 is open breather set up. The 98 I'm going to do a sealed set up.. the only difference is on a sealed one you will need to keep every thing back in a loop like factory. You can't use the factory set up tho because it will be under pressure now..

    So you need to to vent both valve covers and pcv to the catch can and need a vacuum source.

    ok cool so I need one line from each valve cover along with the PCV on the back to feed into the catch can. I will use the breather on the can then?

    So the vac line I assume I will go to the intake prior to the blower now right? Run that line to the vac tree and then I can split it out where ever. What places will I need to run then from the tree to the - what ever needs it? I also assume then that I will be blocking off what use to be the vac lines on the bottom of the upper cobra intake.

    Again thanks for all this help and sorry for the stupid questions. [MENTION=19601]95crystalwhite[/MENTION] if you have questions you need answered feel free to use this post I started. There is a good chance that if you have a question that probably have one as well....

    You don't need a breather if you are going to have some vacuum to it.. needs to be after the maf.. so you don't read that air again.

    Most of vacuum for the car can still be use from the intake. No smog or egr so that leaves. Ac controls, evap, cruise control, brakes, I can't think of anything else. That will get vacuum when you lift off the throttle. .

    Breather only if you are not going to have a vacuum source. .
