I run the BOV from the vac block with no issues. If someone could show a measurable reason why it should have its own port on the manifold I'm all ears.
The only thing I don't run from the vac block is the fuel rail pressure sensor and that's just because of proximity to an available port on the manifold.

Excellent day today, I just ordered the last of my parts all locally so I should be finished this weekend! Pretty excited about it. Only one problem, kids got into the box and now I'm missing my brand new turbo flange. ripping the house apart as we speak. It will turn up somewhere.

Lol. It's always funny when it's someone else's kid. Somehow never very funny when it's your own.

I'm not sure if it does a make difference. It's just a recommendation I picked up along the way and tend to follow.

I have no problem testing it out for everyone. How can I measure something like that? I have plenty of leftover hose to run it anyway I want so I can do that just give me the insight on how to measure it.
