Well, it all depends on how much vacuum the engine makes. If the booster needs 12"hg and the engine only makes 10" hg, you're still going to have issues. The reservoir can't 'make' vacuum. The pump...

Thanks. I miss the mileage of the diesel, but not the short-trip diesel emissions system headaches. Sadly, the weight reduction tuning options have all disappeared with the EPA crackdown.
