    Question Vacum lines

    What a mess. I have a 88 ram 50 with a stock g54b 2.6l engine. I'd like to abbreviate this bird nest some.
    Which ones are necessary and which ones can be capped?
    thanks

    If you have the stock carb you pretty much need all of it as that's what most of the lines are for. If you get a weber and delete your egr you can remove almost all of it.

    on a weber there is a port above the throttle plate - its called ported vacuum and responds differently than manifold vacuum - it (vacuum) rises as the throttle opens, whereas manifold vacuum drops as the throttle opens.
